I received an extra special gift at Christmas this year. It was an old picture of my father introducing me to Jim Wallis. The picture means a lot to me for several reasons:
- I met Jim Wallis!
- It's my Dad doing the introduction
- And it's forced me to evaluate how I'm going about my business in the world today
For those of you that don't know about Jim, he is a champion for what's right in the world. Period. As a young man starting my career, and being raised in a household that focused overwhelmingly on doing what's right, this was a huge moment.
I met Jim Wallis.
What About Now
So now I have this picture on my desk at work...and it speaks to me...it challenges me...it calls me out each day. "What are you doing that will make a difference in the world? A real difference." Some days I don't feel like I have a good answer. Other days I feel like I'm doing reasonably well and am contributing to my team, my organization, and my profession. But is it enough?
