Lots of job hunting going on.
Lots of resumes being polished up and sent.
Lots of exaggerations being written. :)
And I think of one written (without any exaggeration) by a guy named Paul....in the first century.
His lines have been preserved to this day....deemed that important and real.
And here is his resume.
We commend ourselves in every way...
"In great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses;
in beatings, imprisonments and riots;
in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;
in purity, understanding, patence and kindness;
in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;
in truthful speech and in the power of God;
with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left;
through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report;
genuine, yet regarded as impostors;
known, yet regarded as unknown;
dying, and yet we live on; beaten and yet not killed;
sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich;
having nothing, and yet possessing everything."
II Corinthians 5:3-10....from a letter written by Paul.
The resume of a "servant of God"....one constantly at God's disposal.
Traits often of "oh no" to people...but used by God powerfully.
May we live our lives building a resume that God deems great
...through the seasons of life that God so allows.
May we indeed be...........servants of God.
