It’s Who You Know

…..they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. Hebrews 8:11

Yesterday my daughter was enjoying a sunny afternoon, with her two little ones, at the playground. She bumped into an old school chum who had never seen her boys. The friend was taken with both – Ryan, the animated and talkative 2 year old, with sandy blond hair and steel blue eyes, and Tommy, who at 4 months was his usual smiley self. She suggested that Adrienne take them to a place nearby where they’re looking for kids to do a diaper commercial.

When the three of them arrived, the room filled with children and parents. Adrienne checked with the receptionist, and mentioned her referral. They were brought in immediately, ahead of all those who’d been waiting. As she was relaying all this on the phone to me, she exclaimed, “It really is who you know!”

True. At one time I was in a business that required meeting new people continually. One word that was on everyone’s lips was “networking”. If you knew one person, you could use that name to finagle meeting someone else.

Sooner or later we will end up at the famous Pearly Gates. Once there, no networking will be necessary. No appointments, no waiting. We will be asked, in essence, “Who do you know?” And when the answer is “Jesus”, we will be ushered right in.

Definitely it is Who you know.
