The Important Guys

Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12:4-5

The generator mechanic was making his third trip outside into the blizzard like conditions. As the Pathfinder Platoon Sergeant, I was enjoying one of those rare opportunities to actually be in a warm tent and in a sleeping bag. In the darkness I was thinking about how all my hardcore guys were sound asleep while this poor Specialist was outside freezing in the dark trying to get the electricity flowing again. Without the mechanics expertise, the Tactical Operation Center would probably shut down. There wasn’t much need for high speed Pathfinders at that point. It dawned on me how important this guy really was. Everyone has his or her own unique contribution to the effort. The next time you run into one of these important guys, give him or her a pat on the back. And I personally thank you for all you do as an individual for our country, but most importantly, for the Kingdom. Your contribution counts. SP192
