In my book Hiking Toward Heaven, the coangel Michelle discusses the benefits of two old-fashioned virtues: humility and persistence. In the chapter about the challenging hike down the La Luz trail out of Albuquerque, the focus is on an amazing woman called Meme who exemplifies “Never give up” in a fairly accurate portrait of her real life.
A few days ago I received a press story about Tim Tebow, and guess what? It was about humility and persistence! The link comes by courtesy of Brian Schupp, a believer who I met in the beautiful town of Durango, Colorado. Thanks Brian.
Have your tissues handy, because it will make you cry. And if you are like me, it will inspire you to “Help someone to hope”, as the coangel Michelle urged us in the book.
Finally, some critics of Tebow quote the Bible: “When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who is in secret will reward you openly”. One critic wrote “What part of Matthew 6:5-8 do you not understand?” Thoughtful reader: what is your opinion on this? Love to see your comment made in the blogsite.
“For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 14).
