We are bagel slicers.
It's a nice job, and our church seems to think it's necessary. The problem is that other people do our job before we even arrive and we do arrive on time, so we stand around and feel as though we're greatly in the way.We probably are. But time after time, we are asked to come back for slicing duty. And time after time, we go - only to pout about someone usurping our job.
The Lord is beginning to deal with me about my attitude. I am learning that willingness to serve is important. I am learning that graciousness is important. I am learning that humbleness is important.
Then there's this last thing I've learned. Because they slice before we arrive, we are the only ones on the team who have not cut a finger.
I suspect that the Lord still has a bit more work to do with me.
