“If hard work is the key to success, most people would rather pick the lock.” –Claude McDonald

     After watching his employees for several weeks, a local manager of a struggling refrigeration company posted the following memo:

TO ALL EMPLOYEES: Due to increased competition and a desire to stay in business, we find it necessary to institute a new policy. We are asking that somewhere between starting time and quitting time, and without infringing too much on the time usually devoted to lunch periods, coffee breaks, rest periods, storytelling, ticket-selling, vacation planning, and the re-hashing of yesterday’s TV programs, each employee endeavor to find some time that can be set aside known as the “work break.”

Laying down on the job doesn’t go over very well in any business. The success of our careers depends upon our faithfulness, punctuality, attitude, time-management, excellence, and consistency. With that being said, what kind of worker are you in the kingdom of God? How are you doing in the Father’s business? In all of the busyness of life, do you set aside time to take a “work break” for the Lord?
