Labor

Yesterday, America honored those who labor. Without people working, we would have a huge amount of problems. In the lives of those who know Jesus as personal Savior and Lord, labor is lifted to its highest level. The Bible has a lot to say about labor. Labor in our daily lives is a testimony when we give our employer an honest day’s work. It is a means of providing for our own. It is an antidote to laziness. It is an example to others. It enables us to help support God’s work. At its highest level, it is all the labor involved in carrying out the great commission. (See Matthew 28:18-20). Labor is commanded and commended. It is remembered and rewarded, when it is for the glory of God and is a labor of love. Hebrews 6:10 assures, “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have shewed toward His Name, in that ye have ministered to the saints and do minister.” I Corinthians 15:58 admonishes, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” Selah! In the midst of labor, remember Jesus’ Words in Matthew 11:28, “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”    Ron
