My theses in case you have been wondering from the first post is that Labor Day and our entire idea of resting outside of the Biblical establishment of true rest is a misguided concept. All excessive holidays and even excessive weekly feasting, can be a detriment to a proper view of the Sabbath.
Bodies need repose as Adam needed rest, but when bodies seek excessive rest outside of Biblical rest, it is akin to sleeping during a night shift in a war zone. It is possible, but highly unlikely to be restful.
The ancient Egyptians and later the French revolutionary calendar tried to modify the Creator’s pattern by establishing a 10-day week only to fail miserably. It is inconceivable that any human invention can alter the certainty of God’s calendar. Labor day or for that matter any day that attempts to undo the eternal plan fails and is intended to suppress the ethics of the Christian week.
Are you suggesting we only rest on the “sabboth”?

Yes and No. I am suggesting that you get your recommended 8-hour sleep per night every day…:) but do remember that when it comes to our labor we work 6 days and rest 1…and this rest is both physical and spiritual. God himself says: ” six days you shall labor and do ALL your work, but the seventh day is a rest unto the Lord your God.”
