Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. (Matthew 25:34 NRSV)

There is an old story of an elder monk is admonishing a younger monk: "It has come to our attention, Brother Hooper, that you may not be happy with your vow of silence." The younger monk was seated on a bunk with a ventriloquist's dummy on his lap.

We all get that way at times. How could God possibly be in our work? We may ask. Suppose, however, there was no one willing to drive our buses, work our fields, type our memos, design our buildings, prescribe our medicine, teach our children, etc? Think how much poorer our world would be. What we do is important in the kingdom of God!


Lord Jesus, thank you for what you have called me to do in your great kingdom. In Jesus' name, Amen.
