Earlier this week, it rained. It rained in two places: one where A was to speak, and the other, where B was to speak. A canceled the engagement and went to another venue--a warm and dry auditorium. B put on a rain slicker and kept the engagement. He did not leave his audience disappointed. They stood in the rain to hear him as he weathered the conditions offered to him and delivered his message with radiance and hope.
What can we learn from this scenario? A fled from the bad weather, leaving his audience behind and moving on to the next one. He couldn't take the cold so got out of the refrigerator. He's too old for the bad weather and besides that is obviously a fair-weather friend.
B, on the other hand, keeps his appointment, able to bear the cold and rain and not wanting to disappoint people waiting for him in that lousy weather. He stays with them as scheduled. He is not visibly affected but stands tall and strong. He's there with them, whatever the conditions are.
Which of these two would you select for the most difficult job in the world?
