Back on March 2, 2014 a Pizza delivery man gained celebrity status by delivering 20 pizzas to the Oscars. When he left the Pizza shop, he had no idea he was going to be on stage at a famous event, but he was, and now he has turned his 15 minutes of fame into a brand new pizza restaurant that he owns with his brother.
As I thought about that story, I was reminded that many times great things come out of simply doing our current jobs well. You never know when the big break is going to show up on your doorstep. That is why the Apostle Paul said, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters…Colossians 3:23
So, whatever you do today, give it your best effort. See everything you do as not simply working for an earthly boss but also a heavenly one. Then if your day in the sun comes, make the most of the opportunity. Maybe you will start a new business, or maybe you will simply do something good for someone else along the way.
Think about it, and have a blessed day!
