The Sunshine Shoeshine Boy

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might. (Ecclesiastes 9:10, NIV)

A downtown businessman encountered a young boy who shined his shoes every day. He did such a good job that one day the businessman asked him, "Son, how
come you are so conscientious about your work?" The young man felt complimented. He looked up to the man, and said, "Mister, I'm a Christian and I try to shine every pair of shoes as if Jesus Christ were wearing them."

The businessman saw something genuine in the shoeshine boy. Soon after that he began reading his Bible. When he decided to be a Christian himself, he credited his decision to the young man who shined every pair of shoes "as if Jesus Christ were wearing them."

Whatever the task you are tackling today – tackle it as though you are doing it for Jesus
