After three weekends of experiencing a taste of heaven in three core areas of my life (I’ll explain later in TD) with the likes of RC Sproul, Ravi Zacharias, and Joni Eareckson Tada, we have arrived back home, hitting the ground running.
This week has been intense for me with the consuming and demanding nature of the tense, intense, and competitive CIF playoffs. The Maranatha girls tennis team that I coach with Sandra has played every other day for two weeks and has made it into the championship match tomorrow. So, things are abuzz and I’ve been thinking about what real success is, what real winning is, and what championship character is made of. And who came to mind? Paul Smith, who gets the absolute most out of what God has given Him, who puts me in my place, and sets me straight with his grateful, winsome attitude.
If you need a reality check, inspiration for your soul, and a kick in the pants, you NEED to see this. – Humbled, Arthur
“‘but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God. But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, ‘LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD.'” 1Cor. 1:27-31
P.S. Don’t forget our montly visit to the convalescent home, where “humble pie” is humbly served! 🙂
