My boss lent me the book Traveling Light by Max Lucado. There was this one particular page which struck me the most. It talks about the best career one could possibly have.
“According to Russ Blowers, we are. He is a minister in Indianapolis. Knowing he would be asked about his profession at a Rotary Club meeting, he resolved to say more than “I’m a preacher.”
Instead he explained, “Hi, I’m Russ Blowers, I’m with a global enterprise. We have branches in every country in the world. We have representatives in nearly every parliament and boardroom on earth. We’re into motivation and behavior alteration. We run hospitals, feeding stations, crisis-pregnancy centers, universities, publishing houses, and nursing homes. We care for our clients from birth to death. We are into life insurance and fire insurance. We perform spiritual heart transplants. Our original Organizer owns all the real estate on earth plus an assortment of galaxies and constellations. He knows every thing and lives everywhere. Our product is free for the asking. (There’s not enough money to buy it.) Our CEO was born in a hick ton, worked as a carpenter, didn’t own a home, was misunderstood by his family and hated by his enemies, walked on water, was condemned to death without a trial, and arose from the dead. I talk with him everyday.”
(p.33 of Traveling Light by Max Lucado, Chapter 4: The Prison of Want)
Working for the company of Jesus Christ is the best career anyone can possibly achieve. He is the best employer and CEO. From being a carpenter, He built an long lasting company that surpassed centuries. I used to be a customer but now, a distributor as well. I believe in the vision He has for all his people. Truly He came to our lives, employed us even though our credentials fall short of His standards, and gives us pays, benefits and bonuses beyond what we have worked for, asked, imagined or even we deserved.
