This past Saturday I flew from Tampa to Wichita, via Dallas/Ft. Worth. I was flying the friendly skies - up up and away, hoping the airline was ready when I was, so they could earn their wings every day and tell me I was now free to move about the country.
On one leg I sat next to a lawyer and former attorney general; the man was bona fide character. He noticed I was reading from my book, "GET REAL", and we talked about faith for a while.
- "My wife is really interested in that kind of thing," was all he would say.
- "Mark," I said (not his real name). "Did they accept the check?"
- "Of course," he replied.
- "Were you enthusiastic about handing it over?" I asked. "Or did you just deliver the check and walk away?"
- "It was a great experience!" he said. "Why do you ask."
I've been wearing out this central theme recently, but it bears repeating because the implications are so powerful and far reaching.
- "We need to live as if we mean it! Why? Because God most certainly does."
Think about it.
