Bring Life

Our extended family had gathered at my parents’ place to celebrate Thanksgiving.  One morning, as Mom reviewed the various breakfast options with the houseful of guests, she offered bacon, eggs, toast, and cinnamon rolls.  To be complete and inclusive, she then listed the cereal choices – Cheerios®, Honey Bunches of Oats®, Post Toasties®. “Oh, and Dave brought Life®.”

Yes, everyone in the room understood that she was referring to a brand of cereal, but I want the words to be true of so much more than that.  Nothing would make me happier than for others to consistently say that when Dave shows up, he brings a message of life and hope with him!  I would love for others to consistently look forward to my arrival because they knew that I would show up with something helpful and encouraging for them.

Ultimately, I realize that I truly have very little within myself to offer to others.  However, I can point everyone I come in contact with to the Source of Life.  What a privilege and important responsibility we each have for pointing others to Him.

Bring Life to everyone you know!  –Dave
