This true story occurred in Washington D.C. at a banquet held some years ago. The occasion was a commemoration of Harry S Truman's 100th birthday. All the big names were out in ties and tails to honor the event.
A White House member related that one of the guests turned to the woman seated next to him.
"Did I get your name correctly?" The man asked. "Is your name Post?"
"Yes, it is," the woman replied.
"Is it Emily Post?"
"Yes," she replied.
"So you are the world-renowned authority on manners?" the man asked.
"Yes," Mrs. Post replied. "Why do you ask?"
"Because," the man said, "you have just eaten my salad."
Reputation doesn't mean we can let up on daily discipline. Some Christian leaders have been known to let devotions and prayer slide because they feel they have "arrived." May we remember to be faithful in all regular things that the Lord wants us to do in order to walk with Him and be a proper testimony to others.
He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit?
- Luke 6:39 (New International Version)
Dear Lord We pray that the things we do would be a good testimony. We pray that what we do will lead others to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen
