Yes. When I was in high school, I worked as a waiter for a while. Can't say I enjoyed that much. Well, yes I can say it; hated every minute of it. I was fortunate enough to go to college, become an Army officer, and later a federal agent. Come to think of it, that's kind of like customer service without having to memorize "today's menu."RTM have you actually worked in a customer service role, like ever?
When I worked as a waiter, I was a kid and still in school. The same goes when I worked for 7-11 (a convenience store) and a security guard at a high rise condo. The following 40 years have been spent as either a soldier or a policeman; neither of which are well known for the money. Granted, most of that was prior to my re-birth, but I have spent all of my adult like standing in between good and evil and that's pretty Christian in and of itself.Um you would be quite wrong there and generalising way too much, just because you hated waiting doenst mean other people hate it too.
Hospitality is a big industry and waiters are part of it.
As for gas attendants its all in your attitude, as with any job.
Every single job I have worked in was what I could get anyway and whatever I did, I did it for the Lord. Thats the difference, When you work for the Lord, not the money, I suspect when you worked as waiter, you just did it for the money? Thats ok just wondering. Your heart wasnt in it. Also it could have been before your were a christian.
Correct!Hmm, I'm not comfortable with assuming that persons in management are less likely to be Christians than those that they manage. Many of the more successful managers I have dealt with have consciously tried to make plans and decisions and direct those under them according to their faith. They have found a way being a servant on a personal basis to those that they lead from a organizational basis. In fact the success of their efforts can in part be traced to their treating their people with respect while building and suporting a team to accomplish the goals of their business.
When you visited the USA, where did you go to get these kind of thoughts?????Yes, You live in a different country where they used to have slaves and treat people badly, without common courtesies. All in the name of efficiency.
Which people???Well,that was my point to yet some people seems to think that waiters and gas station attendants arent even christians.
AMEN.Yes, and despite all of that, we lead the free world. Go figure.
If it was not for the USA today, right now...…...what do you think the world would look like?????Well the god of this world is actually satan. So its not anything to boast about actually.
They werent really welcome, they took japanaese pows and they also took women for a ride here. The kiwi soldiers resented them sad to say. They also introduced some weird culture into the country. We werent in Any danger of being attacked by Japan although they came close the threat wasnt actually there. We have good relations with the Japanese now.AMEN.
When there is a disaster anywhere in the world...…..who is the 1st country on the scene????
When Australia, New Zeeland and New Guiney were in danger of being attacked by Japan, if my memory is correct I think that the USA stationed about 50, 000 men in New Zeeland.
Lanolin, have you visited Pear Harbor? There would not have been a Nagasaki, had Japan surrendered after Hiroshima. There would have been no Hiroshima, had they surrendered with Germany. While I agree that this was an ugly moment in human history, it saved more lives than it took.Have you been to Japan major...? Have you visited Hiroshima or Nagasaki to see what devastation the US caused. People still dying of cancer there due to the bomb.
Yes, I agree and my apologies. I will say; however, that my obvious disagreement with my sister in no way diminishes my love for her. Scripture illustrates any occasions where there is strong disagreement, yet no hate or malice.I think we are straying afar from the original question.
We should make sure by self assessment that we are showing the Lord's love for all and that those that observe us know who we serve and why.
