On this Labor Day, I am pondering these thoughts...
~ Nate Saint, missionary pilot who (along with Jim Elliot, Ed McCully, Roger Youderian, Pete Fleming) was killed in 1956 by the Waorani tribesmen they were trying to reach with the Gospel
For what are you laboring? On what are you expending your life?
Is any task too small if it is the Lord's work? If Jesus said that we would receive a reward even for giving a cup of cold water in His name (Matthew 10:42) ?
The fact is we are all "expending our lives" for something. Will we have something of eternal significance to show for it?
