Read: St. Luke 10:30-37

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:18 (KJV)

While reading an applicantís resume, I came across words like follow-through, people oriented, and problem solver. The page was full of all the right words, but I have learned that saying and doing are sometimes two different things in the work world. I asked myself if this person would actually be able to live up to all of those well thought-out words.

I also thought about how saying and doing can be two different things in the church world too. I wonder if we were called upon to write a resume for God, if we would go about it in the same way as that applicant did.


The Good Samaritan would be able to list a handís on compassionate act on a resume submitted to God. He helped a man who had fallen among thieves. They had stripped the man of his clothes, wounded him, and left him half dead. The Good Samaritan went to his aid by binding up his wounds, and took him to an inn to to be cared for. The next day when the Samaritan had to leave, he took out some money, and gave it to the innkeeper so he would continue caring for the man until he regained his strength.

The Good Samaritan was a follow-through, people oriented, problem solver. These are qualities that Godís children should possess if they are to serve the world around them, a world that has fallen among the thief whose main mission is to steal, kill and destroy.

Would we be able to include hands on compassionate acts as part of our Christian work experience? If we had to sum up our training and experience for a position in the kingdom of God, would we be hired?


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
