Today, September 6, 2010 is known as Labor Day. Its another holiday to celebrate the end of summer and that change is in the air and to prepare for the fall and winter season. On holidays we usually take time off from work and school and celebrate with our families.
At times I believe we forget that and work, work, work that we forget about relaxing, taking a vacation and resting. Yes, we are supposed to be diligent in working and not be slobs and be idle. Work is good but in good portion. If we work so much and don't take a vacation, we can be more less immune to disease, tired easly, stressed out, lose out on our family duties, etc.
We need to take a break or vacation from work! That is why work most likely gives out vacation time for that reason, a good worker is one who does that. It helps recharge the body, heal the body from the stress of work.
If we were to elimintate all holidays from the year here in America, we would become a sick country and become very unittigent.
If you have to work for a good cause then do so, but please take a break from work and relax! Your body will thank you for doing so.
That's also why the Lord said to take the Sabbath day as a day of rest, to recharge the body so it can be ready for the new work week.
