Good Enough for Government Work

At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. Daniel 6:4

My dad (now a retired Colonel) and I were playing a game and I got the ball pretty close to the hole. I remarked, “Good enough for government work.” My dad tapped me on the back of my head and said “Hey, I’m in the United States Army, part of the government, and ‘good enough’ isn’t good enough.” You know, I haven’t use that phrase since. My guess is that Daniel took his job so seriously that he didn’t use the phrase either. SP173
