I saw a blog post a bit ago which I thought was pretty clever. What it basically came down to was: some people want their piece out of life (money, career, great family, fame) but what it’s better to aim for is to want peace.
But the post itself probably isn’t the most groundbreaking piece of literature out there; saying ‘Jesus is better than stuff’ is just a paraphrase of the Bible, and that’s been around for a long time.
No, what really struck me was the author of the post. His name’s Deion Sanders, and if (like me) you’re into American football at all, you’ll know that he’s one of the most famous, best NFL players in history (i.e. he’s in the Hall of Fame). To see a sports superstar like him not simply saying ‘I’m a Christian,’ but blogging (and tweeting) about it is a real encouragement.
So there you go. This isn’t so much an encouragement to read the blog post (although you’re welcome to) but more a reminder to ask yourself: how are you using the stage that God’s given you to give glory to him?
