Diversity is Good and Right and True

The following exchange was on an Open University sociology TV program.

Interviewer: How long have you worked here?Production

Lady: Since I left school - about 15 years...
Interviewer: What do you do?

Lady: I take packets of biscuits off the conveyor belt and put them into cardboard boxes.

Interviewer: Have you always done the same job? Production?

Lady: Yes.

Interviewer: Do you enjoy it?

Lady: Oooh yes, it's great, everyone is so nice and friendly, we have a good laugh.

Interviewer (with a hint of disbelief): Really? Don't you find it a bit boring?Lady: Oh no, sometimes they change the biscuits...

Never judge another person's like or dislikes, gifts, call or ministry. You might be wrong and think they should like exactly what you like.

Isn't that the truth? No one knows the heart of another except the Lord who made that one. So only HE can judge/discern rightly the thoughts and intents of the heart.
