Not as many teens are working as they used to. Teens learn important lessons in their summer jobs. Kids who work get better grades. They learn team work, problem solving and a good work ethic.
I used to work at a car dealership. That was one of my favorite summer jobs because I got to gas up the cool cars like Mustangs. I was a lifeguard for a while. I worked in a Chinese food department of a grocery store. That didn’t last very long. I kept eating the food. One listener says she buttered toast at a local restaurant.
PSALM 23 FOR THE WORKPLACE…
We don’t know who wrote this adaptation of Psalm 23, but we thought it would give you a lift:
The Lord is my real boss, I shall not want. He gives me peace, when chaos is all around me. He gently reminds me to pray and do all things without murmuring and complaining. He reminds me that he is my source and my job is not. He restores my sanity everyday and guides my decisions that I might honor him in all that I do.
Even though I face absurd amounts of e-mails, system crashes, unrealistic deadlines, budget cutbacks, gossiping co-workers, discriminating supervisors and an aging body that doesn’t cooperate every morning, I still will not stop— for He is with me! His presence, His peace, and His power will see me through. He raises me up, even when they fail to promote me. He claims me as His own, even when the company threatens to let me go. His Faithfulness and love is better than any bonus check. His retirement plan beats every 401K there is!
When it’s all said and done, I’ll be working for Him a whole lot longer and for that, I BLESS HIS NAME!!!!!
