A young boy by the name of James had a desire to be the most famous manufacturer and salesman of cheese in the world. He planned on becoming rich and famous by making and selling cheese and began with a little buggy pulled by a pony named Paddy. After making his cheese, he would load his wagon and he and Paddy would drive down the streets of Chicago to sell the cheese.  As the months passed, the young boy began to despair because he was not making any money, in spite of his long hours and hard work.

One day he pulled his pony to a stop and began to talk to him. He said, “Paddy, there is something wrong. We are not doing it right. I am afraid we have things turned around and our priorities are not where they ought to be. Maybe we ought to serve God and place him first in our lives.” The boy drove home and made a covenant that for the rest of his life he would first serve God and then would work as God directed.

Many years after this, the young boy, now a man, stood as Sunday School Superintendent and said, “I would rather be a layman in the Church than to head the greatest corporation in America. My first job is serving Jesus.”

So, every time you take a take a bite of Philadelphia Cream cheese, sip a cup of Maxwell House, mix a glass of Kool Aid, spread some Miracle Whip, eat a cheese slice or make some macaroni and chese stop and think of James Kraft (1874-1953) who said: I WILL SERVE JESUS!
