Ephesians 4:28 NASB "The one who steals must no longer steal; but rather he must labor, producing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with the one who has need."To some it's just a three day weekend, to others, it's an opportunity to enjoy family and friends one more time before fall begins! Today's Word speaks about labor and how those who steal must stop and turn their labor into good for the sake of their neighbors! Labor day is a celebration of the American worker, it was set up to remember how working conditions were terrible and something needed to change. It was the beginning of the 40 hour work week, and better conditions for workers. I wonder, how are our current working conditions, do we find that we are cheating the company we are working for, are we happy with the work of our hands or is there more we can do to help those in need? While we enjoy that parade or hot dog with family, let's ask if our labor brings God honor, and those in need some help! peace, tom
