Reading: Jeremiah 45: 5
Before coming to camp to serve as director, I worked in the public relations field. There, I did a lot of work which other people got credit for. I didn't mind because I knew my job was to do what I have to do to the best of my ability. I knew that it was my responsibility to make my bosses and my company look its best.
There are people, though, who do want to get all the credit, even if they have nothing to do with that particular project. They thrive on the recognition and the publicity. They want to be at the forefront.
I read a quote once that I thought was appropriate in these matters: "There is no limit to the good a person can do it he or she doesn't care who gets the credit." I think that God wants us to do just that-- do good and not care about getting praise for it. So practice "random acts of kindness" and know you've done good! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Do a random act of kindness for someone.
