At the meeting tonight...

Tonight was our monthly Missions Committee (MC) meeting. The MC consists of some older individuals and then some younger people. Toward the end of the meeting, Brian Davis (26 year old) told Allan Hedberg (70 something) that he would go make some coffee because "he (Brian) had his (Allan's) back". Allan didn't respond....

Brian: "Do you know what that means? When I say I got your back"
Allan: "No, what does it mean?"

And then I stopped paying attention. It cracks me up when I think about the generational differences even in the missions committee.

Then I think about what unites us. It is our love for Jesus and our passion to see Him glorified in the world. We all come from different backgrounds and different generations, but we are all united in Christ.

There is so much that I can learn from those on the committee. I may not always agree with them, but some of them have great wisdom and knowledge from years on earth.

I hope that when I am their age that I have the same zeal, passion, and wisdom.
