Labor day is an American holiday to celebrate and give honor to the workers that contribute to the “strength, prosperity, and well-being to our country” (United States Department of Labor, 2015). Blessed are those who are performing work that they love and who perform it to the best of their abilities. It is easier to give your best when you are appreciated, encouraged, and excited about the work you do. However, today, I would like to honor those who may not be blessed with a job they love, but blessed with a job they need. Perhaps, their work is not glamorous. It can be hard and stressful. Sometimes, they are overlooked and under appreciated. Yet, their work is important. Despite all of this, they still give their best and execute a job well. Thank you for exemplifying the verse below, despite any of the challenges you face in your work.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters…” (Colossians 3:23)
May God bless you with continued strength, endurance, rest, when needed, and love for you to persevere. Have a “marvalous” Labor Day!
