There is a story coming out of ancient England that says that workers in a factory one day were amazed to discover that their king was working alongside them at a lathe, and had been doing so for a long time without being recognized.
When the news got out, it sent a thrill through the people. "The king is working with us," they said. "The king is working with us."
Let us never forget that our king came to earth and walked the lowly problems of life with us. He did then, and our resurrected Lord is with us now.
Doesn't it change your daily routine to believe that "the king is working with you?" He is.
