Study of the Day – How Much More

“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith!

– Luke 12:27-28 (NIV)

Labor Day was created to reflect on the benefits that workers have brought to the American economy. The profit from work is great and the Bible has much to say about that, but we must also remember that it is God who ultimately takes care of our needs. May this Labor Day be a time to celebrate the worker, but also let this day be marked by humble gratitude to the God who provides for us all.
