Today is Labor Day in the U.S.; for most this is a day to celebrate and enjoy a few of the rewards for work well done:
- A silent alarm clock.
- A slower pace.
- Fewer demands.
- Time with family and friends.
Work is one of God's good gifts and so is rest. The writer of Ecclesiastes reminds us:
Today is a day to enjoy the rest of "non-labor day as a gift from God.
Happy Labor Day!
NOTE: Shannan and I have been laboring joyfully and fully in Campinas, Brazil. Today we head to Sao Paulo for an address I am giving to the IPI, the Independent Presbyterian Churches of Brasil: What Makes A Leader A Transforming Leader. I would appreciate your prayers.
Don't Ask The Fish will resume on Thursday, September 7.
