I attended a funeral today for Jim Jesko. I only met Jim a couple of times, but it was such a joy for me to celebrate his life today.
One of my life verses is found in 2 Timothy 2:2, “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” I try to find reliable people in which I can invest because it always pays such great dividends.
Jim’s son, Aaron, was my next door neighbor in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I had the privilege of leading him into a personal relationship with Jesus. Because of that investment, Aaron had the privilege of leading both his Dad and his brother, Scott, into that same relationship. Both Jim and Scott were water baptized on the same day, just four months ago. My investment into Aaron allowed him to invest into his Dad and Scott. Isn’t that the great thing about investments: If you invest wisely in reliable people, you always get back more than you put in!
Who are you investing in today?
