Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. Peter McGuire, a carpenter from New York, is considered the “father of Labor Day” and credited with coming up with the idea of this holiday. Labor Day represents a victory for laborers everywhere to enjoy shorter workdays and better working conditions. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
As we enjoy the Labor Day Holiday next Monday, let us be thankful for the contributions workers have made to this country. I mentioned a couple of years ago about a journal that my mom gave me during my early years in college and is one of my most treasured gifts. I would like to share with you another page from that journal that will help us appreciate the value and importance of being a worker for God.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Proverbs 1:7
What you are becoming is more important than what you are accomplishing. I love you, Mom
Compliment at least three people every day.
You will never build a reputation, a business or a relationship on what you intend to do. Your intentions may be sincere and honorable, but unless you put them into action, nothing is changed.
