land of Day-by-Day, the cities of All the
Time pause to celebrate Labor Day…. A time
intended for resting from the fatigue of
strange people we are. From the very
beginning of the beginning, the creator of
the heavens and earth set the concept of
resting from a week of labor into place. It
was a required practice of this Chosen
people; serious consequences for those who
violated this command.
with so many things human, we perverted the
concept of a day of rest to “busyness of
day to catch up on chores left undone, or
yet to be done, a quick weekend trip, a
shopping day or labor disguised as sports or
recreation, anything BUT a day free of any
form of activity or labor.
we are no longer under “the law”, our Lord
Jesus took time to rest from his labor.
frequently stole away to a quiet place to
rest his mind, emotions and body: Time to
refresh his soul.
Labor Day would be a great day to example
