Christians Songs for Labor Day
“And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when He rested from all His work of creation.”
Since the beginning of time, working and toiling have always been part of the human existence. Although working has significantly shifted from the toiling labor in the farm to the more relaxing environment in the office, we need to work to make ends meet. More so, we need to work to achieve our dreams and goals in life. Without hardwork and diligence, our dreams will remains dreams.
In the Book of Genesis, we read that even the Creator had rested from all His labor in the seventh day. He gave us one day in a week to rest from all our labors.
As tribute to all the people who are working either for their family, for the Lord or are just wanting to find rest, musicplusfaith.com compiles a list of songs that you might find helpful.
