I have this contractor that has been doing some work for me on that old house I've been redoing. He is a youth minister at a church somewhere, but I'll tell you, it turns out his work ethic stinks. In fact, he took my money and didn't finish the work he was supposed to do.
Now this really gets under my skin. I have come to learn in life that you can't really even trust your brothers and sisters in Christ any more than the world. And I think there is something wrong with that. I think of Jesus's words in Matthew 5:37:
37 But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
Maybe you can say that's about lying or even something else, but I think you can include being a man of your word also in this.
This is the retired Shane Killen personal blog, an IT technical blog about configs and topics related to the Network and Security Engineer working with Cisco, Brocade, Check Point, and Palo Alto and Sonicwall. I hope this blog serves you well. -- May The Lord bless you and keep you. May He shine His face upon you, and bring you peace.

I hear you Shane! The best example of marriages should be from us Christians...the best example of workers (employees) should be from us Christians...the best example of integrity should be from us Christians, etc. It is disheartening to see how often this is not the case.ReplyDelete
