Somehow the command to love doesn’t get through to us. We may confess that we lack a strong faith, but seldom do we admit that we are deficient in love. Perhaps we feel we’re as loving as the next person, and maybe a little bit more.
After all, we’re sensitive to the hurts of other people. We don’t enjoy reading newspaper articles about battered wives and abused children. We shift uneasily in front of our television sets when we see little children sobbing with hunger or sitting in silent despair beyond crying.
But deep inside we know that genuine caring reaches beyond feelings to action. Caring, like stream or electricity, isn’t worth much unless something happens as a result of it. Love without deeds doesn’t exist. Both must be expressed or they are a myth.
If you want to be a loving person, don’t start by taking on the needs of the world. Because we can’t do everything, we often don’t do anything. Start with caring about one person and build from there. You can’t do everything, but you ca do something. What you can do, you should do. Today, determine that in the power and grace of God you will do it - Haddon Robinson
With today’s economy, unfortunately more and more people are finding themselves without jobs. Different people, of course, handle the situation in different ways. Some jump headfirst back into the job hunt, polishing their resumes and interviewing skills. Others take some time off to regroup and maybe consider a career change. But there’s a newer, growing trend. Some people are turning toward plastic surgery.
Apparently, a lot of people figure that they need an edge in order to appeal to prospective employers so they go under the knife or at least settle for some Botox. They think that no matter how experienced or talented they might be, first impressions mean a lot. And if you don’t look good - and oftentimes, that means looking young - that can thoroughly affect how other people perceive you.
There have been all sorts of studies that have found that attractive people tend to earn more money and are promoted more than their less attractive peers. But I’m not sure that that’s a good enough reason to get a nose job or liposuction.
Still, people are doing it. A survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found that two-thirds of surgeons said they’d treated patients seeking to remain competitive in the workplace last year.
I guess if it’s something you want to do, then by all means, do it. But I think a new nose or less wrinkly eyes aren’t going to get you a good job. It’s all about your track record and what you can do. Not how you look. I’d suggest working on your resume, not your face.
