“His work will be shown for what it is,
because the Day will bring it to light.
It will be revealed with fire,
and the fire will test the quality of each man’s work.”
(1 Corinthians 3:13 NIV)
I keep a collection of my God Sightings books on hand to give away as hostess or birthday gifts. My personal supply was running low, so I ordered a handful of each publication. The book copies rested on my desk waiting for me to autograph and put them with the others in a portable bin.
Several weeks after receiving the books I decided to sign them. They were all in fine condition except one. The publisher had bound the book backwards! When I opened the cover, the last page was staring at me. The first page was at the end of the book. My husband and I chuckled and commented this was something new and definitely different.
I debated whether to return the mixed-up book, or keep it for posterity. I decided to put it on my bookshelf, but report it to Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing. A nice lady with a foreign accent answered my call. She was very helpful, documented my concern, and promised to pass it on to the publications department. I didn’t want any uninspected books to be shipped to customers.
As we ended the call, she said, “I think I will read this book. Have a blessed day!” Little did I know I was conversing with a sister in Christ. I wished her well and thanked God for reminding me that quality in everything I do is important, even in how I handle phone conversations that could be painful and make me uneasy.
I will put quality in everything I do for God is in control. I hope you will, too!
