Supernal Sunday – Sept. 3, 2023 Edition: Labor (with alt-texts)

NOTE THAT alt-texts on Supernal Sunday posts consist of the text only, no descriptions of graphics, as the text is the important part here.

It is always interesting to me to see how the world has changed – or even perverted – so many Biblical concepts. As most of the country are celebrating Labor Day weekend, I chose to do a quick topical search of the subject of labor. (An exhaustive study of the topic is WAY outside the scope of my posts; however you are strongly urged to look up the Scripture portions that I post within their context, which will give you a much better picture of what is actually being said!) And I am presenting them, as usual, as graphics. Bite sized presentations, as I like to think of them. As you read through these you will see that God’s own purpose for labor may be very very different from how it is so often seen now: something to be avoided, something to be minimized, finding the easy way out, and for strictly personal and selfish gain, rather than the blessing that God intended. So many people are missing out on so many blessings as a result…

I also have made a large graphic of most of these verses (I think I missed one, maybe?) that you can download HERE if you wish, it is under 1MB in size and you can feel free to share it for your own Labor Day posts if you wish! (I will be taking it down in a few days, and deleting this paragraph.)

I hope you have a safe and happy Labor Day as you consider the intent and purpose and yes, the BLESSINGS of labor!

  1. (Slightly off topic) Sabbath is also not understood. This gift was given to the Israelites when they were freed after hundreds of years of slavery in Egypt. It was a weekly reminder that they were no longer slaves. They were to labor 6 days and on one day they were to rejoice because of their freedom.
    Over the years I have talked with several blue-collar who were not allowed a day off for months at a time. These people sometime worked 300 days straight. I immediately saw that there is great value in a day of celebration. They were exhausted people.

    1. Oh yes, that is a topic of itself…maybe – ahem – someone could write a guest post about it or something…if you know anyone, let me know, ok? Then and now – not even the same thing although there are many who are trying to take it back to its roots.
