The Book of I will include the story of the Prodigal Son, and emphasize the portion of the story where his brother finds out about the celebration… implying that they didn’t even tell him his brother was home. He was just out in the field doing his job. He noticed all the ruckus and asked a servant… who knew! The servants knew before the Brother. He worked and did his duty, yet his brother is given the party! Yes, I can see why he was upset. I don’t mean to harp on this… but it is transforming me. Plus, there is more to the story…
There are many questions I have about the parables Jesus told… this is one of them. Another is the parable of the Talents… I always had trouble with that one. More on that later, perhaps.
I know there is a serious lack of communication for the members of the body who are not a problem, but are performing their function and duty. There is a lack of communication for the workforce that is working and making it work.
Philosophically, this is true in church AND business.
Take care of your body, and your body will take care of you.
