One Mile Mosser: Can You Hear Me, Now?

I enjoy stories about human beings and our penchant for making ourselves a tad more important than we really are. Children have a way of humbling most of us, but sometimes we have a hand in our own humiliation. Occasionally, we think, life seems defined by who has the most clout, the most power, or the most prestige.

        

I read of a newly promoted army colonel who was sitting in his new office on the first day of his assignment. He was basking in the pride of his accomplishment, new desk, and office appointments, when a private knocked at his door.

        

Wanting to duly impress the younger man, the colonel said, “Just a minute please,” and then proceeded to speak rather loudly into the telephone. “Yes, sir, general, I will contact the President this afternoon. No, sir, general, I won’t forget.”

        

He hung up, and then beckoned the private to enter his office. “What can I do for you?” he inquired.

        

“Well, sir,” the private responded awkwardly, “I just came in here to hook up your phone!”

Come, Worship

Stay, Learn
Go, Serve
