“Here is what I have seen: It is good and fitting for one to eat and drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labor in which he toils under the sun all the days of his life which God gives him; for it is his heritage. As for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, and given him power to eat of it, to receive his heritage and rejoice in his labor—this is the gift of God.”
-Labor day is an international public holiday where workers celebrate their achievements & air their grievances through their respective unions.
-King Solomon in the above scripture writes that; it is one’s heritage & a gift from God for one to become rich, to eat; drink & enjoy the fruit of his/her labor. This gives us the analogy that not everyone who labors becomes rich & not everyone who becomes rich enjoys his/her labor but only through Gods’ mercy & blessings. Further, work itself & the ability to work is a gift from God. We have also been called to work with all our heart in whatever we do for by this we are serving the Lord Christ & not human masters for we will receive the reward of the inheritance (Col 3:23-24). The word heritage means an inheritance passed down from a previous generation. Through sacrifice in our work; where we offer the best possible effort & intellect which causes a positive impact, God will most definitely reward us according to His merciful love.
Thank You Father for it is yet another year we are celebrating Labor Day. You have done so much for us that we cannot tell it all, we thank You. Many people are suffering at their work places & businesses both locally & abroad, have mercy on them Lord & grant them better opportunities. Many others are unemployed Father, direct them according to Your will. Help & guide us all Father in whatever we set our hands & minds to do that we may dedicate our best effort; as if we are working for You Father. Have mercy on us Lord that we may not labor in vain but bear much fruit according to Your heritage Father. Bless us indeed Oh Lord & expand our territories. Direct us by Your hand & protect us from anything or anyone that may cause us pain. Help us Lord to enjoy that which You have given us for the glory of Your name. Amen
Blessed Labor Day
