I received an email from my friend Paul today. Paul is a nearly-done-with-school probational minister in the Mississippi Conference of the United Methodist Church, one of my role models in this journey, and an all-around nice guy.
We look to role models as we go along in our lives. We need them; we need a standard to live our lives against.
That is, perhaps, the greatest argument for sending down one perfect man to live in this world. Too bad far too few of us saw Him before the Resurrection, but I’d still say He’s had quite an effect, wouldn’t you?
