labor and strive wisely

That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.
1 Timothy 4:10 NIV

A strong positive thought on this day of rest before we all return to work and school tomorrow—remember that honest hard work is never labored in vain.
