It’s kind of a funny thing-this thing called Labor Day. The very name suggests that we should be laboring, while in reality it is a federal holiday used for time off work.
We all have roles to fill, jobs to do, goals to meet. God has gifted each of us with a journey of grace. There are tasks that touch lives that only we can do. We are each given a purpose- that if we fulfill- will touch a piece of the Gospel to a life in need.
We don’t often see the big picture of how God chooses to use our limited life but we are called to just take the next step in obedience. King Hezekiah had a life of many ups and downs as king of Judah but I discovered an enlightening observation on his life.
“In everything that he undertook in the service of God’s temple and in obedience to the law and commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered”
2 Chronicles 31:21
Many times we plant, or water, or pull weeds—and then wait. God is faithful to put it all together and give the increase of fruit. When we give ourselves wholeheartedly to God we will see growth in ourselves and how we love others.
