The Bible and Labor…Days
By Elder Lesley Pearson
Labor Day is a Federal holiday in the United States. Labor Day celebrates and honors the contribution of the American system of organized labor and workers. Samuel Gompers stated that “Labor Day...is devoted to no man, living or dead, to no sect, race, or nation”(np).
According to James P. Eckman (2010), work has three purposes: to provide resources to supply the necessities of life; to provide for a quality of life; and to serve God. By working we resemble God.
Work is ordained by God. (Gen. 1, 1:28, 2:15)
Work is for a lifetime. (Gen. 3:19)
Work is not a punishment. (Ecc. 2:24-25)
Work calls for obedience. (Col. 3:22)
Work with excellence. (Eph. 6:6-7)
Work is honorable. (1Cor. 10:31)
Work is opportunity to witness. (Mt. 5:16)
