Some of you may remember hearing last year about the birth of the McGhee sextuplets. To be specific, June 9, 2010 was the date that Rozonno and Mia McGhee’s family increased in size by 300%.
The McGhees, who lived in Linden and have since moved to Gahanna, own a carpet-cleaning business. When my mother heard about their situation, she vowed to use their services the next time she and my dad needed their carpets cleaned.
Last week mom made good on her vow, and the report she tells of her experience with Mr. McGhee and his company is worth sharing. Mom spoke of Rozonno as a very kind and sincere Christian man. She also said that he provided the best job of carpet cleaning that they had ever had.
Rozonno McGhee reminds us of the importance of having a good testimony for Jesus not only in word, but also in deed. It is wonderful and necessary to talk the talk. We also need to walk the walk, and an important aspect of walking the walk is to be excellent in our work, doing whatever we do to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).
In other words, guys, the way we do our jobs matters to God, whether we are a pastor, a carpet cleaner, a farmer, or a banker.
What are some examples you have seen of Christians doing their work with excellence?
