AND is better
And David shepherded them with integrity of heart;
with skillful hands he led them. ~ Psalm 78:72
Ford Focus has funny commercials with the theme "AND is better" in which they look at the results of having one of two things instead of both - sweet or sour chicken, nuts or bolts, large or in charge, bed or breakfast, etc. The conclusion: AND is better than OR.
David is described in the scripture above as having integrity of heart AND skillful hands. Most have integrity of heart OR skillful hands. AND is better! Consider the following:
- A skillful business person who lacks integrity of heart.
- A really nice, Christian dentist who does not do skillful work with his hands
There is no honor in OR; AND is better! Excellence is a core value of FCA. AND = excellence! OR lacks excellence. Integrity of heart and skillful hands is a powerful combo that will honor the Lord, serve others, and will provide us with endless opportunities for mission, influence, and impact. AND is better!
