“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands upon us;
yes, establish the work of our hands!”
-Psalm 90:17 ESV
A Time to Think… Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. ―Thomas Edison
A Time to Act… On this Labor Day holiday, remind yourself of the labors of your hands, your mind, your accomplishments. God gives us the talent to work and add that to the millions of others, look at what good work has done in our society!
A Time to Pray… O Lord, sometimes I complain about work, sometimes I don’t even want to work, yet I know you have given me incentive and talent to do work and it is all for you. Keep my mind on the steady path you have laid out for me for how I work and all that I do. On this holiday, I celebrate the work of your hands and the gift of work you have given me, AMEN.
