Some people might call him a workaholic. Maybe so, but I do know one thing: his love for God and the work of God take him far beyond the call of duty. His never ending dedication to God’s work and his determination to do just a little extra for God are a challenge to those who observe his good works.
While others sleep, he works. When others tire or give up he continues on. When others don’t show up for their assignment, he is there…dependable as always. While others are wasting time, avoiding work or spending valuable time with senseless conversation he is busy. His good works are a challenge to those who know him well.
Harold Carpenter is not a superhuman. He gets tired. He gets sick. He is disappointed in people who do not perform well. But Harold does stretch the capacity of his humanity to unbelievable limits as he endeavors to do His best for God. His good works will stand as a monument to his desire to serve God many years after he has gone to heaven. Yes, his works do challenge others.
