Why I Finally Bought an iPhone
When Apple first introduced the iPhone, I thought, “that is way too expensive, I’ll never spend that much for a phone.” But after two dud phones by reputable companies, I was tired of taking chances. Despite a company’s overall reputation, they have so many models on the market, you just don’t know what you’re getting. I’ve learned that the hard way. I knew I could count on Apple, so I finally bought an iPhone. Granted I did not pay any where near the list price of $650, but it’s still the most I’ve ever paid for a cell phone.
The difference here is quality, not name brand. It’s like that with the church too. Take this statement supposedly made by Martin Luther more than five centuries ago.
“The maid who sweeps her kitchen is doing the will of God just as much as the monk who prays — not because she may sing a Christian hymn as she sweeps but because God loves clean floors. The Christian shoemaker does his Christian duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship.”
Christians should always be viewed as giving quality effort no matter what we’re doing. It’s the quality that counts, not the label.
