Promise

"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets
even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music,
or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well that all the
hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.' "
~ Martin Luther King Jr.


Every man and woman, boy and girl has a gift and a place to use that gift for the Lord's kingdom. Whatever the body of believers in Jesus Christ lacks, it lacks because someone has not been enfolded into the body, empowered by the Word, and encouraged with our words.

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him... do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.
~ Colossians 3:17,23 (NKJV)


Every person, every word and deed—however distinguished or humble—holds promise for glorifying God.

Lord, please give Your people this day a new appreciation for diversity of people and diversity of gifts which crosses all lines of denomination, race, gender, status, and age.

    Years ago, after advancing well in various jobs and establishing a successful carreer, a cross-country move forced to return to an entry level position. I posted that quote at my desk and lived by it. At this humble little blog, I still try to. Thank you for your kind words. :D

  5. I was just coming on here to post Amen! I saw so many others that I hesitated for a moment lest it seem like I have no mind of my own. But if it's all the same...Amen!
