There was a college student trying to earn some pocket money by going from house to house offering to do odd jobs. He explained this to a man who answered one door.
“How much will you charge to paint my porch?” asked the man.
“Fine” said the man, and gave the student the paint and brushes.
Three hours later the paint-splattered lad knocked on the door again.
“All done!”, he says, and collects his money. “By the way,” the student says, “That’s not a Porsche, it’s a Ferrari.”
“Anger is only one letter short of danger.”
Thought for the day
It is he who saved us and chose us for his holy work, not because we deserved it but because that was his plan. 2 Timothy 1:9 LB
You were saved to serve God. God redeemed you so you could do his “holy work.” You’re not saved by service, but you are saved for service. In God’s kingdom, you have a place, a purpose, a role, and a function to fulfill. This gives your life great significance and value.
