The 100-degree attitude

"Fervent in Spirit"
Romans 12:11 NKJV
When a motivational products company interviewed Tim Dumler by phone for a sales job, he told them his goal was to become their number one employee. After meeting him in person they were shocked to discover he was legally blind. But he promised he'd buy a machine that magnifies letters. So, despite serious misgivings, they hired him. And it's a good thing they did. He came in early, worked late, and within six years became their top producer. His clients loved him because when you're blind you become a great listener. And his associates loved him because of his caring, positive attitude. He said, "It's unfortunate that I'm visually impaired but adversity made me a better person. I have a lot more than I don't have." Tim has the 100-degree attitude!
What's the 100-degree attitude? Please allow me to explain "At 99 degrees Celsius, water is hot. At 100 degrees it boils. With boiling water comes steam. And steam can power a train. One extra degree makes all the difference in business and in life; it separates the good from the great."
Here's some straight talk for slackers, those with no ambition, and those who see no purpose or value in this life: "Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does" (Eph 6:7-8 NIV). The Bible tells us to be "fervent in spirit". This word fervent means 'bubbling or boiling'. In other words, having the 100-degree attitude! By the way, when God promises to reward such an attitude, you don't have to wait until you get to Heaven to enjoy it.

All the best of the day - Relax, jehovah is in Control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111
