So I saw this guy preaching yesterday at Kerry Shook’s Church, Woodlands Church.
He said when he was a kid, his dad was somewhat influential, & played golf at the country club. One day, one of his golf buddies approached him for some money. In exchange, he offered some ownership in a burger joint he was planning to start. He requested for $950. His dad came home & told them about it & laughed, saying he’ll never give the guy a dime. That amount was nothing to his dad by the way.
It turned out that the man asking for the money was Ray Kroc & the burger joint was what became McDonalds.
All those other golf buddies who took up the offer became multi millionaires.
His lesson: like in the real world, with God, one has to take risks to grow spiritually.
