Nothing but the Best

My wife and I once spent a couple of nights at a motel that provided a complimentary breakfast. I remember that the lady who was in charge of the breakfast buffet was quite picky about the food that was served. She was quick to make any changes necessary to provide a quality breakfast for the guests. One morning she wasn’t pleased with the gravy. I am not sure why it didn’t live up to her lofty expectations, but that pot of gravy was quickly replaced by one that was more acceptable. The next day it was the biscuits that didn’t make the grade. They were too hard, and she threw them out and had fresh ones brought in to take their place.

I appreciate those who take quality seriously in their work or their ministry. Too many people are far too easily satisfied with mediocre efforts. We honor the Lord and show respect for other people when we strive to do our best.

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…”—Ecclesiastes 9:10.
