It seems that...
The recruiters were on hand to address a gathering of high school seniors. The recruiters represented different branches of the U. S. military: the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, and the Marines: each of which was given fifteen minutes to speak.
The Army, Navy, and Air Force recruiters all got a little carried away with their presentations; so when it came time for the Marine to speak, he had just two minutes. He walked up and stood utterly silent for a full sixty seconds, half of his time, staring out at the students.
Then he said this: "I doubt whether there are two or three of you in this room who could even cut it in the United States Marine Corps. But I want to see those two or three immediately in the Dining Hall when we are dismissed." He turned smartly around and sat down. When the students were dismissed, they literally mobbed the Marine requesting applications.*
Of course, the recruiting motto of the US Marine Corps is: “We’re looking for a few good men”. The Bible tells us that God, too, is looking for a few good men, as well as a few good women.
2 Chronicles 16:9 (NKJV) says "For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him..."
God is indeed looking for a few good individuals. He is looking for people He can depend upon. Will you be one of those?
*Note: Nelson's original story only has three recruiters: one each from the
U. S. Army, U. S. Navy, and U. S. Marines. Given the fact that my own son is a member of the Tennessee Air National Guard and a graduate of Basic Training within the U. S. Air Force at Lackland Air Force Base, I took the liberty of modifying the original story to include the U.S. Air Force.
