Avoiding Work

Years ago, Kathy and I met a family on the streets of Kansas City who were panhandling for money. They told a sad story that seemed believable, so we decided to help.

We bought them some groceries, and then, I began helping this man to find a job. We developed a resume, I lined up an interview, and I even gave him a suit, but every step of the way he became more resistant. When he didn’t show for his interview, I realized that this man didn’t want a job.

Proverbs 14:23 teaches, “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”

When you interview job applicants, be wary of those who have no sign of hard work in their past. Check references carefully!
