Celebrating Labor

Toward a More Biblical View of Work

Happy Labor Day to our readers in the U.S. We hope you are enjoying some fun on this holiday which generally marks the end of the summer.

Verse(s) of the Week:

And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:28 (ESV)

As many of us rest today, let’s remember that God blessed his image-bearers and gave them work to do. May God grant us the grace to see the work he has given from his perspective.
