NOTE: God is not impressed with our education, creativity, or our cleverness, for the Scriptures State, in many passages, that God is no respecter of persons. It also states that the first shall be last and the last shall be first and that whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. It states that no flesh shall glory in His presence.
I Corinthains 1:27-29 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.
Christians should be exemplary employees and should honor their company in all that they do, or how they do it, …and whatsoever they do they should do it as UNTO THE LORD. I believe that our testimony should be above reproach as employees and as Christians and we should work hard to see that our company is a success for the sake of the business and our own security and happiness. It should be a blessed privilege to serve our saviour from within a company as well as from without.
NOTE: A Confederate soldier scribbled The following words more than a century ago:
The Way of the Lord
I asked God for strength that I might achieve.
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked God for health that I might do greater things.
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
I asked God for riches that I might be happy.
I was given poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
I was given LIFE that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I asked for but everything that I hoped for.
Despite myself, my prayers were answered.
I am, among men, most richly blessed!
The following testimony is by Francis Bacon, one of the world’s greatest scientists. It stands as a witness against those today who deal in «science falsely so called» and who despise faith:
«A Christian is one that believes things his reason cannot comprehend and hopes for things which neither he nor any man ever saw. He believes three to be one and one to be three; a Father not to be older than his Son, and a Son to be equal with his Father. He believes himself to be precious in God’s sight, and yet he loathes himself in his own right. He dares not justify himself, even in those things wherein he can find no fault with himself, and yet believes that God accepts him in those services wherein he is able to find many faults. He is so ashamed that he dares not open his mouth before the Lord, yet comes with boldness to God and asks him for anything he needs. He hath within him both flesh and spirit, and yet he is not a double-minded man. He is often led captive by the law of sin, yet it never gets dominion over him. He cannot sin, yet he can do nothing without sin. He is so humble as to acknowledge himself to deserve nothing but evil, yet he believes that God means him all good.»
Colossians 3:23-24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men: Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
