Experience, humility, and spiritual healing

The first job I had outside the supervision of my family was a construction job. Even though the employer was a considerate acquaintance of the family, the work itself was difficult and physically demanding.

On the day I began the job I listened to what my employer told me to do. But in my youthful exuberance I was sure that sheer brawn would substitute for skill and experience. By the end of the day I was in pain and wondered how I would ever last in this work. The next morning I felt even worse, but I was much more willing to listen and learn!
