Our work matters and is an important part of our legacy. I remember a man named James who was a long-term resident at Exodus Homes. He was a volunteer in our office who worked hard to keep things sparkling clean. He would polish the front desk until it was like a mirror. He cleaned the storm door every day to keep it spotless and taught us not to touch his masterpieces with our fingerprints. We still talk about him today and follow the example he left.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said your work speaks for you. “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
Jesus said the same in John 10:25 “……the miracles I do in my father’s name speak for me.”
Whatever you do – let the works you’ve done speak for you. To hear this beautiful song sung by the author Sullivan and his wife Iola Pugh go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuAM06lQKt4.
