Higher Education.

Posted: May 22, 2017 in Uncategorized

25 years ago we graduated from Bible College

That’s when the real education began!
Here are just a few of the real life lessons that I’ve learned since then…

I’ve learned I don’t know hardly as much as I thought i did.

I’ve learned it’s better to master humanity than hermeneutics.

I’ve learned the titles that really matter…
Friend of God, Husband, Dad, Grandpa, Lover of people.

I’ve learned that being a big deal isn’t really a big deal. It’s better to just be yourself and make the most of the small stuff.

I learned that the friendships I forged at school are much more valuable than the degree I barely earned. If you were my friend then and you are reading this now, I’m talking about you. Thank you for being my friend then AND now. It is priceless.

I’ve learned that sometimes church people can be really mean, and sometimes people who have never stepped into a church can be really kind.

I’ve learned that the family was created before the church for a reason.

I learned that “judging a book by it’s cover” almost always backfires.

I’ve learned that faith is more about trust than certainty. I’ve learned that the moral high ground is a lonely place to live, at the end of the day you may be right, but you haven’t changed anything.

I’ve learned that I am enough because I am held in the grip of a fierce love that can’t be earned or erased.

I’ve learned over and over that God is unceasingly good, unbelievably creative, and undeniably more than I was led to believe.
He also has a pretty awesome sense of humor.
