Illus.: A bank president came to his pastor concerned about one of his teller’s soul. He asked his pastor to talk to him, but the pastor said, “It would be better if you would do that. He would look upon my visit as a professional task.” “All right,” said the banker, “but, will you go with me?” The pastor agreed to do so and went and sat with the banker in his office. The banker pressed a button and the teller came in. After exchanging pleasantries, the president said, “I want to talk to you about the most important thing in the world---your relationship to Christ and your salvation.” In a surprised manner, the teller asked the president, “Do you mean to say that this matter is more important than all of our banking business?—more important than our deposits and loans?” “Yes,” said the president. “Then why haven’t you spoken to me about it before? I’ve been with you for 12 years.”

If every person considered his calling sacred and used his opportunities to witness for Christ, he would not only win many souls, he would find the highest happiness on earth.
