No Menial Job

There is no such thing as a menial job
If done with a heart of love
And a desire to make
The best of it
No matter what!

Jesus the Christ left
His Heavenly Royal Throne;
Became a simple man
Washed His disciples' feet;
A servant's job did He with
Love, grace, and dignity!

So to qualify or disqualify others
By the job they do
Is shallow and unproductive
Since first and foremost
They are God's beloved creations
Made to carry out His good purpose
Whatever that might be!

It's best therefore not to judge another
But to first observe their attitude;
For their thoughts and actions
Might well reflect
The Light of the World
And His teachings!

"Let your light so shine before men that they
may see your good works, and glorify your
Father which is in heaven."
(Matthew 5:16)
