“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, in order to gain what he cannot lose.”
I stumbled on a quote today that struck me pretty good. So much so that it lead me to look into this man the quote came from. I certainly was not expecting to get lost in a heart racing story about this man, Jim Elliot, and the five men who lost their life in the jungles of Ecuador.
I would not do their story justice, so I just direct you to the unbelievable account of their life, which has left a mark on me, and surely thousands of others. (Obviously enough to get me dipping in ink and writing out quotes…just look past the 47 mistakes;)) The quote aboe will make all the more sense after you read.
Feeling a renewed conviction to dedicate more time to growing in my own faith….so that maybe one day I will have the conviction like Jim Elliot. Enough to be willing to die for it!
I know, deep thoughts for a Thursday…
