It’s Labor Day Weekend, we remember and celebrate our work, our labor, and our laborers. Officially, Labor Day is an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers. For Christians it’s also a day that we should celebrate the gift of work given to us by God. Genesis 2:15 says, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” Work is a gift, and it should be celebrated, and we should remember who gives it to us. Sunday, we will look at the holiday set up by Esther and Mordecai to celebrate and remember all the events that took place in their day, The Festival of Purim. How God turned things around and took the very thing that was meant to destroy the Jews and caused it to be the thing that gave them life and salvation from their enemies. We will also discover the importance of remembering and celebrating those moments in our own lives when God “Turned things Around” when He turned our sorrow into joy.
