Enraged, Eric drives the short distance to his apartment, cursing the company and India the entire drive. He knew nothing of the country itself, but has seen news reports that a lot of companies were outsourcing to the Asian country. His hatred burns as he enters the apartment and drops onto the couch.
Eric jumps on the internet to look up India, and outsourcing. He finds a website that defines outsourcing as: a subcontracting process to a third-party company. The more he read, the more he fumed. His former company did this to save money and left him looking for a job in this harsh economy. His rage ensues and draws a hatred to the entire country of India, as he learns that most outsourcing is sent there.
An hour of seething passes and he finally calls a close friend of his to tell him the news. The friend listens to Eric rant, curse and bash the company and the country of India for nearly half an hour. The friend finally stops him and tells him to listen to what he has to say.
“You do still believe in God right Eric,” the friend asks.
“Of course,” Eric responds.
“Then have faith. Although your JOB was outsourced, His love isn’t” the friend counters.
“What do you mean,” Eric asks.
“Read Hebrews chapter 5 and you’ll see what I mean,” the friend continues, “Hebrews 5:9 says, “…and having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation…”
A short silence interrupts the conversation.
“Eric,” the friend says, “God knows what He’s doing, even though you don’t. He loves us and He will never give us up. We NEVER inconvenience Him"
