The Most Important Thing

Audio / Produced by The High Calling

Transcript

When Mark was 13, his mom let him bake the crowning moment of their family's Thanksgiving meal—the pumpkin pie. She figured he couldn't mess up a recipe that depended on store-bought crust and canned pumpkin.

Despite the distraction of his favorite college football game, Mark successfully baked a beautiful golden brown pie. He proudly set it on the cabinet until dessert. Only after everyone took a bite was it clear that Mark had overlooked one essential ingredient: the sugar.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. In the haste of a busy world, it is easy to forget the most important ingredient. As you give thanks this year, be joyful! Don't forget the sugar that sweetens … in the high calling of our daily work.

David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying …
"Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name."

(1 Chron. 29:10-13)
