" So let's not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don't give up, or quit. " (Galatians 6:9) This happened in New York years ago. An elderly couple was in town for a vacation, but unfortunately, there was a convention being held in the city therefor, all hotels were full. They walked from one hotel to another but there was no more accommodations available. Tired and weary, they ended up to a less classy part of town looking for a place to stay. Again, these places are all filled. They were on their last hotel so tired as they requested for a place to stay. The hotel has no more room available but the receptionist took pity on the elderly couple that he offered his own place for them to stay. "It's just a small room but it has its own bath and you can stay for the night for free", said the receptionist. " And it's just across the street so you don'y have to walk very far". The couple accepted the offer and stayed in the man's room. The next morning the kind receptionist came to check n his two visitors and brought them breakfast. And got the shock of his life. The old man told him, "I'm going to build a prestigious hotel here in New York. I want you to be my manager." The young man, speechless, agreed. The old man turned out to be William Waldorf Astor owner of the famous Waldorf-Astoria Hotels. The kind receptionist became one of the hotel's most capable and famous managers.
