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]
