The human resources director was interviewing a prospective employee when she noticed that the applicant had written down an enormous figure as a salary request. “You certainly expect to be compensated well for someone who has no previous experience in this line of work.”
The applicant replied, “I certainly do. Work is a lot harder when you don’t know what you’re doing!”
Sometimes when we serve the Lord it feels like we are in over our heads; like we don’t know what we are doing. But as we seek his wisdom and work in the strength he gives us, we find a way to get the job done.
“He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”—Colossians 1:28-29.
