But today, I’d like to share a personal aspect and ask you to do the same.
Question is: what does your normal day look like?
Here is mine:
I am sitting at the United Club at Denver International Airport, as I have hundreds of times over the years. I am looking at about 100 other travelers.
As I walk through the airport on my way to my flight I will see several thousand people rushing along. On my flight, I will share gorgeous views and bumpy rides with another 200 souls.
In Sacramento, I will repeat the airport scene with hundreds of others. During the week, I will stay at hotels where I will see hundreds more people, and I will meet with a couple dozen colleagues before the week is over.
On the way home, more thousands.
So what is the point?
In all probability, a significant number of these people are family members of mine whom I have never met and have no way of identifying. They are brothers and sisters in the family of God who share the same spiritual DNA.
The hole in my heart is the longing to meet some of them one day, when Streamside is a reality and we can share coffee and the joy of the Lord on the road. Let’s say I encounter 5,000 people this week and let’s say only 5 percent of them are family members.
That would be 25 brothers and sisters I could meet whom I did not know yesterday! That would fill the hole pretty fast!
What is your day like? How many people do you see? Have you ever imagined having a way to find out who your brothers and sisters are?
That day is coming. Send me your thoughts!
