Bible Verse:
“Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father” (1 Thessalonians 1:3 KJV)
Meaning:
Labour of love came to mean work that is done voluntarily without expectation of material return.
Origin and Application:
The phrase “Labour of love” that appeared in King James Version of the English Bible was translated as “work prompted by love” in New International Version. Paul wrote these words of thanks to the church of the Thessalonians, the converted people in Thessalonica, which is now the second-largest city in the present-day Greece.
