It hit me today as I read “The Benefits of Labor”. I was expecting another Bible truth of sowing what we reap but she pointed out that it isn’t just,
(Galatians 6:7 KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.It is also that we reap the results of other’s labor.
That can cause me to rejoice in the ways in which God provides. It also serves as a reminder that I have a responsibility to do my part so that others can reap their rewards. We are tied together in common everyday ways. If the baker does not get up early, I have no bread. If the farmer does not plant, I have no bread. If the truck driver takes the day off, I have no bread. If the grocer stays home, I have no bread. What happens when I am the baker who did not get up early?
I am thankful, not only for having work myself but for the work of others. And Christian Ear said it faster.
