Reflections on Labor Day

Part of the genius of the American free market economic system is the freedom to buy and sell, to start your own business or work for someone else, and freedom to enjoy the fruit of your own labors. Work (Labor) is good. Man was created to work and give expression to his purpose and potential and be recognized for it by his Creator. God gave us freedom to associate (organized labor) as well as freedom not to associate. God-given Liberty is precious and should be precious to us. But remember that we are individually held accountable for how we use the freedoms we enjoy. Someone else will not be accountable for my choices; I must answer for my own actions. Organized labor MUST understand and reflect this principle of individual accountability. I am grateful today for our God-given freedoms and for their rightful expression in the marketplace.
