Amazon? Good guess, but the answer is, “No.”
McDonald’s? Close. They are ranked #4, with 1.9 million employees.
Walmart? You are closer. They are ranked #3, with 2.3 million employees.
United States Defense Department? You are very close. They are ranked #1, with 2.86 million employees. Wait a minute. You said, “very close?” How about “right on” if they are ranked #1! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_employers)
Sorry, but their ranking is off. There is one employer that is much larger than the Defense Department. There is a very good chance that you, yourself, also labor for this one.
Here is a clue: “As he came forth of his mother’s womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand. And this also is a sore evil, that in all points as he came, so shall he go: and what profit hath he that hath laboured for the wind?” (Holy Bible, Ecclesiastes 5:15-16, KJV) Are you laboring for the wind in your life? That is, are you laboring for material possessions, all of which are going to be left behind when you die? “And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” (Holy Bible, Luke 12:15, KJV) Every material thing that you are working for on this earth, it is all going to be left behind when you die. Have you been laboring for the wind?
“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.” (Holy Bible, 1 Timothy 6:6-7, KJV)
“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Holy Bible, Matthew 6:19-21, KJV)
Who is your employer? “Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men.” (Holy Bible, Ephesians 6:6-7, KJV)
Do you personally know your Creator? “Prepare to meet thy God.” (Holy Bible, Amos 4:12, KJV) “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.” (Holy Bible, Titus 2:13, KJV)
