Happy Monday!

Proverbs 6 10-11

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 6:10-11

A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest — and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.

Although we may be tempted to hit the snooze button on the alarm a few more times, especially on a Monday, it’s time to rise and shine for another week of work.  Laziness may sound good now but you’ll pay for it later. Hard work brings prosperity, laziness brings poverty.  Take pleasure in the work God gives you and do your work diligently for the glory of the Lord. Work is a gift so be cheerful and thank God  for your job.

Happy Labor Day

Matthew 11 28 Labor Day

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 11:28
