The Best Job Ever...
Reynolds Group didn't have to look far for applicants for one of the company's newest job openings. Reynolds Group owns the Reynolds Wrap brand, and announced this summer it was looking to hire someone for two weeks to travel across America in search of the best barbecue ribs in the country. According to Reynolds, the "Chief Grilling Officer" would be responsible for posting photos and videos to the company's social media accounts during two weeks in early August. For this work, the foil giant announced it would pay $10,000. ** Moe Cason (see pic) was the lucky man chosen for the job.
Talk about dream jobs...reminds me, cause I'm a seasoned citizen, of Li'l Abner's job in the ancient comic strip; he was a mattress tester. The Bible says God has custom-designed some "dream jobs" for you and me who follow Jesus Christ.
Paul put it this way: "We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our destiny and the good works we would do to fulfill it!" Ephesians 2:10, TPT
Part of the adventure of following Jesus is walking into the good works he prepared for us. As we live our ordinary lives, we regularly intersect with an opportunity that He thought of long ago; he arranged our history so that we would bump into a person, group or circumstance, and get to choose to partner with Jesus in a ministry act.
Walking in the Spirit's power, fulfilling the good works planned for us, that's the Best Job Ever. Tasty job, eh? Perry Floyd
