I was impressed last Sunday morning as one of our youth greeted me as she walked out the door after the service, and told me with a beaming smile of satisfaction and pleasure that she had just resigned from her job the night before.
She wanted to come to the Sunday fellowship times so much, that when there was a job conflict, and the employer wanted her to work on Sunday’s, she was willing to joyfully sacrifice her job to be able to come to the services!
She lives in a very poor family, where that job was desperately needed, financially…
My heart was deeply touched to see that kind of dedication and commitment demonstrated in the life of a young lady! It made me wonder how many others are unwilling to make those kinds of living sacrifices – who may financially have the ability to do so much more easily?!!
