2. When he made this face…

i was 11 years old. the science teacher walked in the class and began his lecture by saying, “Today we're going to study the atom. The atom cannot be seen by the human eye. it cannot be seen under a normal microscope. it cannot be seen even under some of the most powerful electro-microscopes.” i was taught by a science teacher to believe in an atom that nobody had ever seen. Our teacher admitted that he had never seen an atom. Then he said that this atom (which he had never seen) was divided into three parts. a proton, neutron, and electron. Now wasn't that ridiculous? He had never seen an atom, didn't know what it looked like, but he did know that it had three parts to it. And he expected me to believe it! yet i did believe it. and i still do. i believe in nuclear fission, atomic energy. i believe in atomic explosions and nuclear power. All of these things are structured upon the fact that the atom exists and has three parts, and although we don't know what an atom or a proton looks like, we believe in the atomic bomb. Just like the atom, there are many things that exist and take place every day, but we don't see them yet we know they're there, even though we can't see them or prove their existence. Any person who looks at the precision and the symmetry and the beauty of this universe and draws the conclusion that it “just came about” is crazy. you have been looking at this universe with its tremendous laws, its millions and billions of stars and planets hurtling through space at fantastic speeds and never colliding, and you are saying it just came about? think of many things in your everyday life that you have accepted, believed or trusted that you cannot see. They taught me in biology that there is vitamin A in carrots, vitamin B in rice, vitamin C in oranges, vitamin D in milk. i can't see a vitamin, and i don't know what a vitamin looks like, but i eat them every day and receive their benefits without seeing them. Why can't i believe in God without seeing him? it's been the most thrilling, the most adventurous life i believe a person could ever live. What a privilege it is to have the God of heaven and earth live inside me! #LEADERSHiP

3. He decided to be a cook and also show us he’s got swag.

By the time i was fourteen i could tell you the difference between existentialism and rationalism, between Freudian psychology and behavioristic psychology. i was acquainted with the works of men such as Jean Paul Sartre and existentialism. i was well read in Bertrand Russell, that great philosophical agnostic. And i knew the writings of other great philosophers like Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Francis Bacon, Spencer. i reasoned that if i could read these men and grasp some of the great philosophical teachings that had been handed down through humanity, what in the world did i need Jesus Christ for? i could stand on my own two feet, think for myself. One of my favorite poems was: "it matters not how straight the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, i am the master of my fate, i am the captain of my soul". i believed it, that i was the master of my own soul. i could determine my own destiny. i thought i had the intellectual ability to stand on my own two feet. As far as i was concerned, God was for emotionally disturbed people who needed that kind of a crutch, for Sunday school kids who didn't know any better, for older people who were about to die and needed some sort of hope to cling to. But i could think for myself. But think about it… i didn't understand the monetary system, but i spent money every day! No idea about the factors that caused the stock market to go up and down, or how easing credit benefits some people and hinders others. Even though i didn't understand these things, still i believed that they worked. The same is true with the passengers on a plane. Most of us do not understand the engineering principles or techniques that makes the aeroplane fly. Though we do not understand it, yet we trust them to get us where we want to go. So…why can't we believe in God even though we do not understand him? No matter how intellectual u are, i tell you …. that you are not asked to understand God, only to believe in him. HiS BLESSiNGS COME ONLY THROUGH BELiEViNG, NOT THROUGH UNDERSTANDiNG. #LEADERSHiP
