Yesterday I was able to head over the local high school and present for the annual career day. Geez, I can’t get away from these kids! 🙂 Amazingly, this presentation turned out to be the highlight of the day, even better than the evening’s cross country banquet at the Golden Corral.
Anyway, by providing the official drink of software development ( and gaming) – Mountain Dew Code Red, and by giving away door prizes that included Nerds, Goobers and Smartees, I think I keep them interested in the life of a Software Engineer.
But what I really wanted to share with you was the verse that I shared with them at the end. When all is said and done, I told them to pick a career that they enjoyed and that ultimately put them in a place where they could give the glory to God – no matter what is was.
And amazingly, I stayed right in Colossians 3, where it seems I am spending the entire week.
17And 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. Colossians 3:17 New International Version (NIV)
Who are you doing whatever you do for?
