VAN BUREN— Identifying a need and creating a quality product is key to the success of any manufacturing business, and that's no different for Big Spring Sheltered Workshop in Van Buren.

In the Bible we read that God called Moses to lead the Hebrew people (Exodus 3-4), Jeremiah (Jer. 1:4-10) and Isaiah (Isaiah 6:1-9) to be prophets. Jesus called the disciples to follow him (Mark 1:16-20). In Ephesians 4:1-3, Paul tells us that each of us is called by God. “I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” We have different gifts, yet we all have a calling. In I Corinthians 12:7 Paul says, “The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others.” No one else can do what you can do. In your job, in your family, in your neighborhood, you are called to live a life worthy of your calling as Christ’s own. May God bless your week!
