Matthew 11:28-30 - Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Joshua 24:15 -
Choose this day whom you will serve; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

See here for a couple of my favorite posts on Jesus and Mary.

And for the perfect role model for fathers and workers, let's not forget St. Joseph.  Together they provide the model for grace filled family life (JMJ is the holy family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph)
