To be appointed and posted as ambassador of one’s country in a foreign land is one of the most coveted things in politics. If a person does not want the hustle and bustle life of politics and does not want to be in the news constantly but just wants to serve his or her country quietly in some location far away from home, then this is the job for such a person. Ambassadors are respected not only at home but also in the countries where they serve. Their family members are protected and mostly shielded from the everyday troubles of the street.
However, coveted as the position may be, there are limitations to what an ambassador and his or her family could do. This begins with the way and manner in which they conduct themselves in the foreign land. Because they are seen as representatives of their countries, anything they say or do would reflect immediately against their home countries. They must be extra careful not to speak or act in manners that would embarrass their home countries.
"Therefore everyone who hears these Words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock."
