Easy Work

The only people for whom the job is easy are those who’ve never done it. (Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court associate justice)

There are a lot of “sidewalk superintendents” who stand around, watching others working hard to do their job. Such self-appointed bosses often think there’s a better or easier way to do what they’re watching. Thomas’ observation, however, is most often true. Until you’ve set your hand to the job, you can’t really know how hard it is.

Pay attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. (Galatians 6:4)
