Ordinary Men Jesus Chose For An Extra-Ordinary Task.

When Jesus wanted to change the world,he summoned a rather ordinary group of inexperienced,not overly talented men to be his disciples.

A missionary once wrote something interesting on a sheet of paper.It was called’A Memorandum’,and it read as follows:

To:Jesus,Son of Joseph,Woodcrafter’s Shop,Nazareth.

From:The Jordan Management Consulants,Jerusalem.

The Subject:A Staff Aptitude Evaluation.

Thank you for submitting the resumes of the twelve men you have picked for management positions in your new organization.All of them have now taken our battery of tests and we’ve not only run the results through our computer,but also arranged personal interviews for each of them with our psychologist and vocational consultant.

It is the staff’ opinion that most of your nominees are lacking in background,education and vocational aptitude for the type of enterprise you are undertaking.They do not have the team concept.We would recommend that you continue your search for persons of experience in managerial ability and proven capability.

Simon Peter is emotionally unstable and given to fits of temper.

Andrew has absolutely no qualities of leadership.

The two brothers James and John,the sons of Zebedee,place personal interest above company loyalty.

Thomas demonstrates a questioning attitude that would tend to undermine morale.

We feel that it is our duty to tell you that Matthew has been blacklisted by the Greater Jerusalem Better Buisness Bureau.

James the son of Alphaeus and Thaddaeus definetly have radical leanings and they both registered a high score on the manic depressive scale.

One of the candidates,however,shows great potential.He is a man of ability and resourcefulness,meets people well,has a keen business mind and has contact in high places.He is highly motivated,ambitious and innovative.We recommend Judas Iscariot as your controller and right-hand man.

All the other profiles are self-explanatory.We wish you every success in your new venture.

For you see your calling,brethren,how that not many wise men after the flesh,not many mighty,not many noble,are called:But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise;and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.1.Cor.1:26-27.
