Labor Day!

Labor Day is a holiday in the USA to honor men and women in the workplace. It is a day set aside to celebrate with parades, picnics and family gatherings.

The Bible tells us a lot about labor:

Exodus 20:9-11 – Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

Ephesians 4:28 – Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

1 Thessalonians 1:3 – Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

These are just a few verses, there are many more. A good study. If you are struggling with burdens today these following verses will bring you comfort and rest:

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11: 28-30
