For our authors and readers in Canada and the United States, today is labor day, when we celebrate work by doing less of it!
I like to find something posted by one of our authors to highlight on various holidays, and today a post by Bob Cornwall, author of a number of books caught my attention.
As a Christian, I’m reminded that my first calling or vocation is to be a follower of Jesus Christ, and as such I’ve been called to love and serve my neighbor. As part of this service to God and neighbor, I’m invited to engage in labor that will provide food and shelter for me and my family. From what I earn I can also contribute to the welfare of others who share this world of ours. I may be employed, but my divinely given vocation is to be a blessing to others.
