Tug and Tag

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


Tugboats play an enormous role in a smoothly running port. But in one busy harbor, they had a special name for a certain reckless tug. They called her "Tug and Tag."

She earned this nickname for her dangerous behavior of hitting nearby ships or even docks as she slammed about in her work. But after awhile, the captains of other boats began to notice a kinder gentler side to "Tug and Tag." Inquiring with the harbor master, they learned that the tugboat had a new skipper and that made all the difference.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. What a difference a quality leader can make! A real turn-around can take place when a leader focuses on excellence. We all have that opportunity. It's the high calling of our daily work.

"This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."

(John 3:19-21)
