How often do you see people more concerned about getting a job done right than they are about saving their necks? Too seldom, right? But when we do—when we see a gutsy human taking a few risks—ah, now that’s a person worthy of a pat on the back.
So here’s to the woman whose husband left her with a nest of kids to raise and bills to pay, but who somehow tells me every Sunday that God has never been closer. Here’s to the single father of two girls who learned to braid their hair. Here’s to the girl, told to abort the baby, who chose to keep the baby. Here’s to the doctor who treats more than half of his patients for free. Here’s to all of you reckless lovers of life and God. So what if you forget about pleasing the crowd – most of us aren’t even in your league.
