The story is told about a bus driver became annoyed with his job because he had to wait 7 minutes after every run near an open field which litterbugs had made into an unofficial dump. He often thought that somebody should do something about that unsightly mess.
One day he himself decided to get out and pick up some of the tin cans and other debris which were lying all around. This improved things so much that he soon was eager to complete his route and spend all his free moments in cleaning up the area.
When spring came, he was so enthusiastic about his project that he decided to sow some flower seeds.
By the end of the summer many were riding to the end of the line just to see what the thoughtful servant had accomplished by doing what he and others had only talked about before.
Prov. 12:24 – The hand of the diligent will rule, But the lazy man will be put to forced labor.
