Labor Day


Exodus 20:9-10 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals nor the alien within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Labor Day – the 1st Monday in September observed as a legal holiday in recognition of the working people.

I feel so good after a day of hard work at home. It is such a sense of accomplishment to see the yard mowed, the weeds pulled, the house cleaned or the windows washed.  I could go on and on. It seems there are always at least one more chore needing my attention. God knew this would happen to us when he presented Moses with the ten commandments. Because God knew the importance of rest, he created the Sabbath for his children.

Instead of checking one more thing off your “to do” list this week, spend your Sunday re-energizing your battery. You will be amazed how much more you will accomplish during the week when you give Sunday to God.
