Who do you work for?


A group of salesmen went to a regional sales convention in Chicago. They promised their wives that they would be home in plenty of time for Friday night's dinner. Rushing through the airport, one of these salesmen kicked over a table full of baskets of apples. Apples flew everywhere. They didn’t stop because they would have missed their plane if they did…except one.

He told his buddies to go on without him, to call his wife when they arrived home and explain his taking a later flight. Then he returned to the terminal where the apples were all over the floor and the 16 year-old girl selling them was crying softly. She was blind, on her knees, groping for the apples.

The salesman knelt on the floor with her, gathered up the apples, and helped set the display back up. As he did, he noticed some of the apples were bruised.

When he finished, he said to the girl, "Here, please take this $20 for the damage we did."

She nodded through her tears and said, "Mister, do you work for God?”

Remember to help where you can and don’t get in too big a hurry as you make a life, and not just a living.
