Gilles Labor Day Poem At Gospel Coalition Website

in Exhortations And Musings

Labor Day is this coming Monday, here in the U.S. With that in mind, see Bobby’s poem “God of Shop and Marketplace,” featured today at

We’re always honored to contribute or be mentioned in any of the TGC sections because it is one of our favorite websites. This particular piece reminds us that God created us as workers. Work isn’t the product of the Fall — it’s God-ordained activity. The poem then asks God to bless our labor in Christ, and “redeem our work for Kingdom use.”

Bobby originally wrote the poem several years ago, in response to a class on marketplace theology taught by our pastor Daniel Montgomery.

Have a good Labor Day weekend. We’ll resume with new articles here at My Song In The Night next Tuesday.
