Carol T, the longtime leader of the Thursday lunchtime Bible Study at my building at Ford Motor Company, wanted to encourage the rest of us to let Jesus' teaching color our lives at all times, even at work. She shared this email with us:
"Hey I don't normally send these but I really think this one is appropriate because of our current study – people do watch us! I was in the C-Store just this morning speaking to a guy who admitted to asking around about me because I was different (no comments Mark & Brian & Chuck). I said I was a Christian he said ya I know (he laughed) and you may actually be for real. I was stunned. "
I know exactly what she means. Carol is one rare person who really does practice what Jesus preaches at most times. She does not act selfishly, but selflessly. Without any preaching, she was able to get Jesus' message across to a person working in the building, and he valued it as positive. - Bill Schaef
