Till The Sky Falls

The title of this post is the often quoted wisdom of a Leader from another generation and time. He is now deceased. My friend Bill Hull refers to such people as “Evangelical Luminaries.”

The entire quote is “Do right until the sky falls!”

That sounds simple. But, for stubborn self-centered sinners it is always a major challenge. I can rationalize and find 1,000 reasons why it was not my fault. ‘Those people’ (the ones that differ with me – oh the audacity) are just plain wrong. After all, I have a wall full of degrees. I have served the LORD for 40+ years in a Leadership role. I have been to 27 countries around the world training National Leaders. Don’t these peons know who they are dealing with?

Bottom line. When you need to do right – DO IT! Do it until the sky falls. God is always honored and we are always blessed (perhaps not in this lifetime) when we do right.

So, the next time you find yourself up against an opportunity which offers a fork in the road, a choice; be an arrogant bone-head doofus, or, do right, humble yourself and do right. Do it until the sky falls. Do it today, tomorrow and the next day and the next and the next . . .

Your reward awaits you and you will have crowns to cast at His feet. Now that is right!
