He’s a working Joe. In fact his name is Joe. He’s the guy behind the counter at Jiffy Lube who does the stuff on your car you can’t or don’t want to do.
He not only has the technical know-how to change your oil and inspect all the important moving parts you’ve neglected over the past year, he’s also required to hold a counseling degree.
“Mr. Harper? Yes sir, your car has absolutely no oil in it. Have you even looked under the hood over the past year? Bless your heart.”
“It’s only by an act of God your car even survived. Our guys are gathered around it right now in awe of what can only be described as a miracle. It’s a good thing you got it to us when you did.”
“I’m going to ask you to check in with me once a week to make sure you’ve checked your fluids and tires to ensure we don’t find ourselves in this situation again next year.”
“If you would please sign this “maintenance accountability” form, we’ll get you on a ten-step program to get you and your car back in a working relationship.”
“We’ll get through this together.”
Whether you’re a pastor, a mechanic, or any other occupation, you can be used by God to be a blessing.
“Whatever you do… do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus.” Col. 3:17
