Like an ostrich

Resourcefulness is a good thing, right? The Bible uses the ostrich as a model for resourcefulness. Although they cannot fly, these creatures have other traits that more than make up for this apparent deficiency. But other actions and attitudes associated with ostriches show the dark side of resourcefulness, and serve as a warning for us.

Real Customer Service

Think about it: Jesus had less response and found more resistance in the synagogue than in the workplace. So He took the gospel to the workplace. That's where the power of God was manifested.

We All Were Created To Serve Others

By Dr. Rick Warren God formed every creature on this planet with a special area of expertise. How do we know this? In the Old Testament of the Bible, we are told, “Your hands shaped me and made me” (Job 10:8). Some animals run, some hop, some swim, some burrow, and some fly. They all have a particular role to play, based on how they were shaped by God. The same is true with humans. Each of us was uniquely designed, or "shaped" to do certain things.
