A go-fer receives enlightenment

about the Boss’ plan, on a need-to-know timetable. The human-wisdom of a go-fer HATES trusting the Boss, wants to know what’s ahead, and HATES being a go-fer. The happiest go-fers follow the Boss, are content with not knowing, because they realize they aren’t paid to think, but just follow directions from the Boss on a need-to-know basis. The happiest go-fers are the humble ones, thankful to have a job, be lovingly-cared-for by the Boss. The happiest go-fers are content for all glory/credit to go to the Boss, no need for any of their own.

The unhappiest go-fers wannabe boss of their own lives, captain of their souls, master of their fate. Willful, entitled, agendafied, self-absorbed. And unfruitful with seculars.

So what can we go-fers do when we realize we HATE not knowing, HATE being lowly go-fers? CONFESS our pride, our unbelief in the genius plan of the Boss. Ahhh. Nicest, kindest thing the Boss ever does for us go-fers is to freshly open our eyes to see the problem.
