ME, MY MOP, AND THE DOCTOR
Early one morning Jim Belasco, a noted writer, went to the Methodist Hospital in Houston, to interview the world-famous heart surgeon, Dr. Michael DeBakey. As he made his way toward the operating room, he met a custodian with a smile as large as life and singing happily with all his heart as he mopped the floor.
Curious to see such enthusiasm at such an early hour, the writer asked, “Why are you so happy?”
Came the quick reply, “Me and the Doc are going to save some lives today.”
We all form partnerships for many different reasons. There are occasions when partnerships are formed for leisure activities or social events, and other times for work or special projects. But imagine a partnership that included a mop and a scalpel, a doctor and a janitor. Unbelievable! But that is what Paul had in mind when he said, “We work together as partners who belong to (and bring glory to) God!” Who’s your partner?
Prayer: Father, May all our “partnerships” be formed with the simple purpose of pleasing You. May we join with others and work to honor You! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building. 1 Corinthians 3:9
