Mercenary or warrior?

One of the e-mails I receive daily is the Play of the Day from All Pro Dad. I thought today’s was great and wanted to share it.

A mercenary fights to make money for his own benefit; his life is basically devoted to himself. Picture the businessman who works eighty hours a week looking for the next big deal and financial payoff. He says he’s doing it for his family, but they don’t buy it.

The warrior, on the other hand, fights for a purpose greater than himself — a higher calling. He’s the guy who balances job and home life. He works to provide for his family and those less fortunate than himself.

So, are you a mercenary or a warrior? There’s a world of difference.

I don’t always succeed at being the warrior, but I pray that I will move closer to that role each day!
