Take a moment to check out this awesome video: the first part of the video is a depiction of the development of a baby human and the second part is a series of real, unedited images from space. And I want you to consider this as you watch it: God did this. Reflect on that. Ask God to help you see him for who he is. [wpvideo 7QV4Ukxn]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owZc3Xq8obk Important and convicting words for both Christians and non-Christians from Penn Jillette (of Penn and Teller), a self-proclaimed atheist:
“I’ve always said I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize, I don’t respect that at all. If you believe that there is a heaven and hell and people could be going to hell, or not getting eternal life, or whatever, and you think that it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward; and atheists who think that people shouldn’t proselytize, just leave me alone keep your religion to yourself. How much do you have to hate someone to not proselytize? How much do you have to hate someone to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that? I mean if I believed beyond a shadow of a doubt that a truck was coming at you and you didn’t believe it and that truck was bearing down on you there’s a certain point where I tackle you. And this is more important than that.”

Are you waiting until everyone joins in, or are you willing to step out and look insane? Leadership is sometimes a lonely place – this is why, while we might look insane, we need to know where we’re going and why we’re going there. Even if no one is following and we look ridiculous.
