Devotional - Wednesday, March 1, 2017 60/305

Today's Scripture: "You shall make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is outermost in one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain of the second set." Ex 26:10

See it.


Live it.

Countless students are graduating college with a debt to the government that will haunt them for years. That's sad enough, but the worst part is that after attending school, they probably won't find a good job much less one related to their major. At the same time, employers can't find people with skill to build a career in the service industry. I learned this the hard way when I was asked to find a draftsman to do drawings for work under contract. Every young person with education that I found quit before drawing one page. One found work at a hardware store more advantageous than learning a lifetime craft. He aspired a "better" job but the challenge to find a suitable job grows more difficult with every passing graduating class. Now an 84 year old veteran is doing the drafting in his retirement and grateful for the opportunity.

Yesterday on Capital Hill, Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs, delivered a robust speech to legislature bringing to attention the problem I just stated. But trying to get Congress to do anything is a challenge, but seeing them turn from failed government programs is next to impossible. It seems that some things never change: solutions are not found in government, only problems to overcome.

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for every opportunity afforded me and the privilege to learn something new.
