Firing an employee is one of the toughest jobs a supervisor ever faces. For example, though the experience can be negative, an insurance sales manager was known for his tact and diplomacy. One of his young salesmen was performing so poorly that he had to be terminated. The manager called him in and said, “Son, I don’t know how we’re ever going to get along without you, but starting Monday we’re going to try.”
It is interesting to see how one little word like "but" can make all the difference in the world. “We all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). In Romans 6:23 we are told, “The wages of sin is death.” The verse, however, doesn’t end there. The conclusion is “But, the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” What a difference that little connection word makes.
God, thank You for the reconciliation that comes through Your Son, Jesus. Amen.
In GOD We Trust!
