A FEW THOUGHTS: Labor Day 2021


pick a winner

[When one chooses the topic and then writes about it on a regular basis, one inevitably runs into the occasional ‘brick wall.’

These are the days when a writer feels like throwing all of his possibilities against the wall and picking a winner from those which stick.

There are times when one simply CANNOT find a subject to write about.

This is not ‘writer’s block‘–or any of the other excuses writers have provided to those who look for their writings–this is more like the ‘well runs dry’–at least for a little while.

And so it was that, as is usual with such things, SEVERAL topics were considered, rejected, photos secured, some research was done on one or two AND THEN REJECTED, then FINALLY, one was chosen to expound upon.

Among the topics which did NOT make the cut (but which may very well become the focus of an article in the future) were: David Wilkerson quotes (using Wilkerson’s OWN WORDS to illustrate how that charlatan was NOT a man of God); the notion that some claim to have of “Who wants to live forever?” (which was originally based on a movie); and, the utter confusion suffered by those who see the events of the last days unfold before them BUT who do NOT believe those events are the judgment of God.

FINALLY, another topic was settled upon–one that is a little more timely–and so, the rest of this piece will be about THOUGHTS ON LABOR DAY.]

Labor Day 2021

1- The whole idea behind Labor Day was originally to honor LABOR–or rather, those who labored (workers).

Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.

2- That being said, a great number of Americans celebrate something other than the American labor movement on that holiday.

Some–over the years–have used the occasion to tend graves, especially of those warriors killed in battle.

Some have used the day to catch up on work which they have felt they did not have time to do otherwise.

And a great many see Labor Day as one of SUMMER’s three BIG Holidays (along with Memorial Day, which unofficially kicks off Summer at the end of May and the Fourth of July).  A sizable portion of these folks–at least in this writer’s knowledge–have come to honor Labor Day as the day which CLOSES OUT SUMMER (unofficially).

3- Labor Day has become a day when many families ‘cookout.’  For many–not all–this is often the LAST cookout for the outdoor grill  until the next year.

4- Labor Day was the day after which, traditionally, many municipal pools CLOSED.  Again, this fact, no doubt, contributed to the idea that Labor Day was the death knell of summer.

5- A year ago,we offered a piece in which Labor Day was used to contrast the type of jobs which NOW are generally available and the type of jobs which ONCE were available when the USA was on its way up.

Labor Day 2020

Labor Day 2020 could just as easily celebrate jobs which are scarce and mostly minimum wage–where once they were good-paying and plentiful.

6- Three years ago, it was pointed out in these pages the contrast between man’s version of Labor Day and God’s version.

Labor Day Eternal

How many see Labor Day as an extra day of rest, one day of a three-day long weekend, a day for cookouts and picnics OR the a day signalling the end of summer?

Many declare Labor Day to be a day to take a break and get in some last-minute summer rest.

With an emphasis on getting some rest.

Rest is one thing that believers are promised in God’s Word.

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
–Matthew 11:28

7- Finally, the question popped up: “How many more Labor Days will there be?”

Since Labor Day is an AMERICAN holiday, it stands to reason that IF America no longer exists, there will be no more official Labor Day’s.

DOES the reader have certain tasks or duties he has always associated with Labor Day?

OR, does the reader celebrate the American labor movement on that day?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
