I talked to one of my employees last week, and he raved about his shifts this semester. He was very appreciative for the employees I assigned to his shifts, for they often went above and beyond the call of duty. As I listened to his heartfelt sentiments, I encouraged him to thank them for their efforts. He did, and they received his gratitude joyfully. My employee understood how to say thank you.
Deborah and Barak, the co-stars in today’s text, also majored in thanksgiving. Before today’s text, GOD gave the Israelites victory over King Jabin, after 20 years of oppression. I like Deborah and Barak because they didn’t waste time popping champagne bottles or planning extravagant parties after the victory. Instead, they immediately sang praises to GOD. It’s evident: praise is in order when great things happen!
I’ll conclude this email by following my own advice. This week, the Daily Recharge Mailing List welcomed its 100th member – praise GOD! I’d also like to thank each of you for spreading the word to co-workers, family, and friends. Thanks for your assistance in the success of this ministry.
Have a blessed weekend …
