Labor Day 2023

It's Labor Day banner

Labor Day is Monday, September 4, 2023. This is a holiday set aside to celebrate the American workers who contribute to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our great nation…a worthy holiday indeed!
Below are just a few Bible verses to reflect upon as you rest in the Lord this Labor Day weekend:

Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy. 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, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. ~ Exodus 20:8-10 [ESV]

Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. ~ Deuteronomy 15:10 [NIV]

You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you. ~ Psalm 128:2 [ESV]

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; ~ Colossians 3:23 [KJV]

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. ~ Matthew 11:28 [NKJV]

Independence Day 2023

The 4th of July here in the United States is typically a day filled with barbecues, fireworks, and gathering with friends and family to celebrate our independence as a nation. More importantly, it’s a time to thank God and praise Him for all the freedoms He has blessed us with.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. ~ Psalm 33:12 [KJV]

Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. ~ Galatians 5:1 [NKJV]

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. ~ 1 Peter 2:16 [ESV]

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. ~ Galatians 5:13 [NLT]
