Get on the Bus


Our friend Max starts most of his days at four. By six he starts dropping the kids off at school. The first one is forty minutes away and he makes a total of five stops, which takes him close to two hours.

A bit after one, he begins the same process all over again to pick the kids up.

He admits it’s quite a sacrifice. He also does it to have a place to stay, since his actual wages are minimal. His hopes are to soon work in a business setting so he can save up and ultimately pursue seminary or theological studies.

I’m rooting for him.

Lately I’ve felt a whole lot of admiration for those who work hard for a purpose. It goes beyond work ethic. When I see someone put in the legitimate effort that it takes to put themselves in a good position to help provide for others, I can get behind that, and it’s something I want to be able to say I’ve done well within my lifetime.
