Job Benefits – Good News for May 18

John 15:26-16

Jesus said to his disciples, “When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning.

“I have told you this so that you may not fall away. They will expel you from the synagogues; in fact, the hour is coming when everyone who kills you will think he is offering worship to God. They will do this because they have not known either the Father or me. I have told you this so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you.”

The Daily Path: You get hired into a new job and pass through the training program. You are ready to hit the street and the company exec stops in to tell you, “Oh by the way, when the competition is chasing you down the street with rocks to stone you and swords to cut off your head, just remember it’s not personal, they only know their way.” Obviously, it takes some real faith to work for that company. 

Some of us catch it just for being Catholic, as I’m sure other people do who discuss their own faith. You get some verbal rocks tossed at you… even by other Christians. I’d like to see less time gathering stones at the rock pile and more time around the water cooler embracing the common denominator.

Oh well, at least the boss issued a warning of what was ahead.
