Often it takes time to meet a classy individual. This week was the time. I met three professional Christian men, a doctor, a carpenter, and a realtor.
The doctor and I exchanged biblical stories and his spiritual journey during the exam. There is a Bible study room in his house. He is a proactive witness and prays for his patients, neighbors, and the lost. He got his current position with my primary doctor’s practice because my primary and he are Christians. This doctor is a man who walks his talk.
The second classy man I met was a professional carpenter. I’m moving and need several fix-up projects before listing my house for sale. From the start, this carpenter’s spiritual viewpoint was clear. He said he was a believer and hoped I was, too. During the three hours he worked on the first day, he shared spiritual stories of witnessing and helping the homeless in our town.
My classy, professional realtor is a notable Christian who recommended the carpenter. You did not ask, but I encourage you to pray for the realtor’s wife, who is fighting cancer.
We remember it is natural for people to resist meeting new people because they fear they won’t like them and the meeting will be unpleasant. It is better to expect to meet a few classy individuals than to avoid people — not like you. You may encounter a professional like a doctor, carpenter, or realtor who loves the Lord.
