A Conversation

 BigTruk: "I feel so alone and cold over here by the fence. No one pays me any attention. My big, beautiful dualies are covered up like they don't even exist. All the business and use goes to that uppity little blue Focus. My humans must like her better than me. What can she do that I can't do?"

Me: "Don't you fret, Mr. BigTruk! Your big, important job is just ahead of you. Or should I say behind you? You'll be out in front in the lead. Be patient. Miss Focus can't do what you can do then. She'll be following you!"

 Miss Focus: "We all have our role to play in life! I can do three things you can't do, Mr. BigTruk. I can save my owners lots of money by drinking gas instead of diesel. And I can get into a small parking space, and I can turn around easily, all things you can't do. It just seems to you as though they like me better because they use me much more often."

Me: "It's like us humans. God gives some an everyday kind of faith for the smaller, more ordinary jobs in life, and to others looking on it seems these people must be more important or more loved. Others, like Mr. BigTruk, may be in the shadows for part of the time, unnoticed, and then when the need arises, they come to the fore for the big jobs. We are all important to God! Each of us has a gift, not to be compared to others. Play your role as best you can, for Him!"

"And whatever you do in word of deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him." Colossians 3:17
