This month we celebrate Labor Day, a day set aside as a federal holiday in 1894. It was designed to honor the labor movement and the contributions of this workers, that is why we have a three-day weekend. Let this remind us of a principle found in our bylaws where we appoint committees to serve the needs of the many so no one person bears the burden alone.
This principle is reaffirmed in the scriptures as found in Galatians 2:9-10 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. It is a reminder to our commitment to the overgood of the Moose Order. This fraternity reaches out and helps so many people in need that otherwise could not help themselves, let us be steadfast in our work for the greater good.
James 1:27 teaches us that pure religion is to visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction and while doing so keep ourselves above reproach. Take time this month to help those that cannot help themselves.
