Labor Day--Taking Christ with You
For most Americans tomorrow is a holiday, it’s Labor Day, & in the opinion of some, it is the most hypocritical of all of our holidays. They say that if Labor Day is a celebration of the unique rights & freedoms that we, as workers, enjoy in our nation, that if we’re really thankful that we have jobs while some don’t, that if we’re really serious about labor being a blessing, then what we should do on Labor Day is go to work & tell the boss, "I’m going to work today, & I’m going to work for free, just for the joy of working."
But no, we’re not going to do that, are we? Most of us will say, "I don’t want to work on Labor Day, but I do expect to get paid for it anyway." Maybe we’re not quite as dedicated to the celebration of labor as we thought.
So let me ask you a few questions, "Do you really like your job? How many of you look forward to going to work on Monday mornings because you really miss seeing your boss? How many of you miss your fellow workers so much that you can hardly wait to get back & see how they’re doing?"
I want to share with you what I believe will help you see our work as an exciting opportunity to serve God. With this in mind, I want you to see three things this morning. First of all, I want you to see your everyday work as a service for God. (Even if retired)
I. SEE YOUR EVERYDAY WORK AS A SERVICE FOR GOD
Do you realize that almost everything we do affects someone else? We have food because there are farmers who planted the crop or raised the cattle. We are the beneficiaries of their labor.
II. YOU CAN SERVE GOD WHERE YOU WORK
You say, "You don’t know my boss or you’d never suggest that. I work in a pagan office in a pagan company. There is no way that Christian principles will ever change that."
III. ALL OF US ARE MINISTERS
I want you to see that all of us are ministers, no matter who or where
