The Stain Remover
by Rick Boxx
May 24, 2010
Some canned pop exploded in the back seat of my car, leaving ugly brown stains. I attempted to clean the pervasive spots to no avail. Years later, at a premier car wash, an attendant assured me, for an extra fee, that if he put his best guy on the carpet stains they would disappear.
45 minutes later, a beaming young man, who had diligently scrubbed my carpet, asked me to examine his handiwork. I was shocked to see the spots were gone!
Proverbs 12:27 teaches, "The lazy man does not roast his game, but the diligent man prizes his possessions."
This young man modeled diligence, and deserves to bask in his God given talent. Are you known as the best in your workplace, due to your diligence, or are you just another employee?
