Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ bringing you a positive message minute.

It took many behind the scenes players
to get this photograph of my daughter:
reflector holder, someone holding her,
a photographer, my wife to pick wardrobe,
and the wonderful EastSide Park grounds workers.
Thanks to everyone who helps us excel in life.
Focus on that old phrase, "behind the scenes" for just a moment.   In all areas that we excel in life, there is an abundance of people at work behind the scenes that deserve respect and praise.  In my case, my wife is the hardest worker I know, enabling me to be a community leader.  Eastside Park is beautiful this time of year with a great playground, blooming cherry trees, and a clean environment, yet there is a large crew at work behind the scenes that garners little of the attention of this great area attraction.  Yesterday, I heard of the amazing work  EMA's and Firefighters did to help save the life of a friend of mine, yet there is little praise for the support staff of dispatchers, accountants, chiefs, and secretaries that make these life saving services possible.

Many of these humble, behind the scenes, servants follow this guidance from scripture in Philippians 2:3-4 when it says, "Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others."

Today, thank a humble servant, a behind the scenes player, a support to the star, who enables someone else to reach forward to do great things.  You'll be glad you did. 

"Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." - Ephesians 5:20
