Daily Nugget

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

Sophie, the scrub woman, was a Christian. One of the gentlemen in the large building where she worked said to her, “Say, Sophie, I understand that you are a Christian.”

“Yes, sir, I am a child of the King,” was her immediate reply.

“Oh! So you must be a princess, since God is your King.”

“I sure am.”

“Well, if God is your Father, and you are a princess and a child of the King, do you not think that it is beneath your dignity to be found here in New York City scrubbing these dirty steps?”

Not being daunted Sophie replied, “There is no humiliation whatsoever. You see, I am not scrubbing these steps for my boss, Mr. Brown. I am scrubbing them for Jesus Christ, my Savior!”
Whatever our lot in life, we must remember we are not only working for our employer, we are representing our Lord and savior. To see our service--both secular and religious--as service to Jesus Christ should strengthen our resolve to walk worthy of our calling, whatever that may be. The apostle Paul gives us this advice in 1 Thessalonians 2:12:
“That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.”
"God, thank You for letting us represent You wherever we are.

Bro. Bill

God is Love! Let us reflect that love.
