God's Call

On this Labor Day, the last day of summer vacation, let us take a moment to remember all those who labor.  There are many people in our lives who labor and work for the betterment of our world.  I came across the following statement about some of our early laborers and thought it would be good to share.

Jacob cheated, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul committed murder, Gideon was insecure, Miriam gossiped, Martha worried, Thomas doubted, Sarah was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zacchaeus was short, Abraham was old, and Lazarus was dead ... God doesn't call the qualified; He qualifies the called. We all know we are not perfect but God is still working in us to help us to be better laborers. 

As we enjoy this day let us not mourn the passing of summer rather let us rejoice in the call we have received by our loving God to be people of faith, hope and love.
