Truett Cathy was the founder of Chick-Fil-A restaurants. The business had a very humble beginning in 1946 with one small restaurant called The Dwarf Grill. It was in this little restaurant that Truett and his brother came up with the chicken sandwich that so many of us enjoy six days a week.
It took 21 more years before the first Chick-Fil-A restaurant was established in Atlanta. In the years that followed, Chick-Fil-A became a southern restaurant chain in the South and now has made it into our neighborhoods up in Wisconsin. The overwhelming impression of Chick-Fil-A is that they take good care of their customers by providing fast, courteous service and delicious food. Truett Cathy was a devoted Christ follower. He taught Sunday School in his church for 50 years! Hearing God’s calling for him, he not only wanted to take care of the customers; he wanted to take care of his employees. This is why Chick-Fil-A has given out over $35 million dollars in scholarships to its employees.
What is your employer known for? Or if you are a boss, what are you known for? Every one of us has at least some moments in our lives where we are the boss. And God has a special calling for bosses.
This weekend are we are continuing our Called series as we look at God’s calling for employers. Hope to see you for worship this Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am. You can worship at Victory, on our live stream site, or on our YouTube channel.
Reaching today’s people with Christ’s victory,
