Work in the Vineyard of the Lord
This is Labor Day Weekend. It is our opportunity to reflect on the importance of work in our lives and how it is that we continue to provide for our families, friends and the wider community.
We believe that all we have is a kind of gift from God. As our creator, God has given us this beautiful world in which to live. We also believe, however, that we can be “co-creators” with God whenever we work to make our world and society a better place to live.
No matter what our profession or job may be, we can continue this work of creation by seeing that all we do is a part of God’s divine plan. What a powerful reality this can be!
So, whether we are working full time, part time or retired, let’s remember that we are called to work in the “Vineyard of the Lord” and to make the world around us a better place for all!
And let us continue to pray for one another.
