77777. That’s how many sevens I had in the invoice for the big job I’ve just finished and am turning in. No, I did not make $77,777.00! First of all, today is 7/7. There go 2 sevens. The other sevens where in another part of the invoice.
Perfection! Does that mean I turned in a perfect job? I hope it was as close to perfect as I could make it. I strive for perfection. Not because I’m a perfectionist but because my Lord and Savior deserves the best from me. When I do a job for Gospel Publishing House or any other publishing entity, I consider it a labor of love to the Lord. That I get paid for it is a big bonus. I need that money to keep my own i-publishing ministry going.
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Col 3:17).
“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free” (Eph 6:7-8).
Let’s get back to seven.
I put in “seven” in my e-concordance. There is so much material on “seven” that if I went through it I would not complete the other job pending, so it will have to wait.
I found a web site called sevens. Maybe you want to check it out.
The sevens, I’ll get back to them, after a lengthy study. For now, here are the greatest sevens:
