George Washington Carver, a botanist and inventor, was born into slavery in 1860. Against all odds, Carver eventually received a Master’s Degree and went on to teach at Tuskegee University.
Although Mr. Carver accomplished many amazing feats in his lifetime, his fascination with the peanut became his most noted. He was truly an uncommon man.
A famous quote of his is this, “When you can do the common things of life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.”
Proverbs 22:29 says, “Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.”
Becoming uncommon or unconventional in applying your God-given skills to your vocation can result in taking your career to unimaginable heights!
