Flesh Slaves Milling About…
Think for a moment. In my work environment it's more interesting and educational than I often make it sound. While I've not experienced any reprieve from the daily threats by irate customers (this past week), I have learned a thing or two about being an example both as a Christian and as a Manager (I Peter 3:16). Today being my day off may be the only reason I've not received a physical threat from an angry food consumer. I've been able to think about the blessing's the Lord sends that we would say are "disguised" but are actually obvious! I have bosses above me and coworkers around me that are believers and more often than not, they'll offer encouragement when such trials occur in a stressful work environment (I Thess. 5:11). I thank the Lord for these blessings. It is in light of the trials that I rejoice in His sovereignty. Ultimately, the bottom line results into being a front-row witness of a diverse population of people indulging in the temptations of their flesh. Not only are they enslaved, ensnared, and completely bound by sin, they are examples of what we need to be saved from.
