Who Said It?

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom."
Whatever it is that we are called to do we must do it to the best of our ability. If we rescue people, teach children, lay brick, sweep streets, work on an assembly line do it as if you were working for God because as Christians our work reflects God. People watch us to see how we work, live, laugh and love others. We are a witness for God each day that we live. So, today whatever you do, give it your all and we can make a difference In the world and in peoples lives.
