Save Time and Preach Like Never Before. Try the new
TEXT: JOHN 21:15-19


INTRODUCTION: A. I read about a fellow who definitely needs another chance in the employment scene.
This fellow described his plight this way:
1. My first job was working in an orange-juice factory, but I got canned because I
couldn’t concentrate.

2. Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn’t hack it, so they
gave me the axe.

3. After that, I tried to be a tailor but I just wasn’t suited for it; mainly because it was
a sew-sew job

4. Next, I tried working in a muffler factory but that was exhausting.

5. I wanted to be a barber but I just couldn’t cut it.

6. Then I tried to be a chef – I figured it would add a little spice to my life.

7. Finally, I attempted to be a deli-worker but any way I sliced it I just couldn’t cut
the mustard.

8. My best job was being a musician but eventually I found I wasn’t noteworthy.

9. I studied a long time to be a doctor but I didn’t have any patients.

10. My next job was in a shoe factory. I tried it but I just didn’t fit in.

11. I became a professional fisherman but discovered that I couldn’t live on my net

12. I managed to get a good job working for a pool maintenance company but the
work was just too draining.

13. Then I got a job at the zoo feeding giraffes but I was fired because I wasn’t up to it

14. So then I got a job in a health club but they said I wasn’t fit for the position.

15. Next, I found being an electrician interesting but the work was too shocking

16. After many years of trying to find steady work, I finally got a job as a historian –
until I realized there was no future in it.

17. My last job was working at a gourmet coffee shop but I had to quit because it was
always the same old grind.
