Triple Crown Winner, MMM 10-4-2010


Monday Morning Message, October 4, 2010

The past few weeks have been most exciting for me to see the release of Kingdom Gains and the many groups who have been obtaining copies of the book.  Many THANKS to my friends at In His Steps Foundation; Cuyahoga Valley Church; and Christian Financial Advisors from Kingdom Advisors and NACFC who have purchased multiple copies of the book.  You all made me feel like I was the Triple Crown Winner this past month with those three organizations leading the way.  Many of you have also indicated an interest to place the message of BRI in the hands of more people either thru gifts or by generously distributing copies at conferences and meetings that will be coming up soon and that too excites me to think about all of the people who will read and hear about investing with God’s guidance.

Speaking of triple crowns, we were able to view the new movie coming out about the last horse to achieve such an honor.  This is my first ten (10!) rating for any movie for this year and I recommend Secretariat to one and all as one of the most enjoyable films of all time.  It is rated PG and even though the language around the horse barns could have been depicted in a salty way, the film makers chose to keep it family oriented as well as avoiding lurid bedroom scenes.  I recommend taking children and grandchildren alike as the story of courage and team work resonates with this old coach!  The faith of the groomsman is also a key element in the film and the subtle but effective gospel music is clearly a message of positive influence to all who were touched by this great character. 

Congratulations also to Pastor Ken Whitten of Idlewild Baptist Church here in Tampa who is in his 21st year of service to this church and community.  You might think a 12,000 member church is a testimony to Ken’s leadership, but it is actually his largess of thinking about God’s calling to both the local church and beyond that is Ken’s greatest gift.  Even in his first few years at Idlewild, he still had vision to send a youth group to Cleveland, Ohio, and help his friend Rick Duncan who was planting a church that has become Cuyahoga Valley Church!  He continues to send folks all over the world to share the Good News that Jesus can make a difference.  Now there is another Triple Crown Winner Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

I Corinthians 1:25 (RSV) “For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”
