Bible Studies Devotional By Lynne Conley / a couple of weeks ago Share Tweet Pin Share Highest Calling Look very closely at the Customer Service area at businesses. Several months ago, I went to a local department store to have a link or two taken out of my work watch so that my watch would fit more tightly on my wrist. The Customer Service was terrible; the lady wasn’t friendly that was behind the jewelry counter. The lady was rude, arrogant, and muttered hatefully, “Can I help you”? I said, “Yes, please. Thank you so much.” I handed the lady my watch. She had taken one link out so I tried it back on my wrist, but it was still real loose-fitting. I said, “Ma’am, can you try taking out one more please?” She said, “I don’t know how to take any more links out of your watch.” I said, “Thank you for all your help.” My time was limited anyway; I had to be at work in less than an hour. This made me feel like going elsewhere to do my business. This person was a bad representative for that company. We all know that not everyone who works in Customer Service is like that at all, but the majority of the time it is just like my experience several months ago. This is a bad reflection on the company anywhere the Customer Service is awful and unpleasant. The fact is people will go elsewhere and never want to come back to that place of business. If we can’t handle dealing with people in general, this shouldn’t be the job occupation we have chosen. This showed me what that lady went through at home on her face on that day. This is the same about being a part of the greatest family of God. Often the action portrays and exposes something totally against the love of Jesus. Then we are a bad representative of Him. What kind of example are we portraying? We should never take our bad day, our bad attitude, and our bad life circumstances out on other people. In the Word of God, it records, ”Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God”. (1st Corinthians 5:2 KJV) The definition of an ambassador is- an authorized representative or messenger (Merriam-Webster) We all need to remember wherever we may go, we are representatives of Christ, that is our highest calling. People shouldn’t have to question us. People should see Him in us. Let’s not make the Lord ashamed of us but let the Lord be so proud He chose us to be his representatives. Stay encouraging one another always.
