One piece of wood

What creation, I ask you, is more powerful than the human heart? Created in God’s image…..the human heart makes profoundly significant choices which can alter life on earth for all of mankind. A single choice made in the heart of just one man can lead to the death of millions of innocent people…..or cause the suffering and genocide of an entire generation of children. The heart of man can choose, and I cannot help but wonder just how-----powerful----- my choices really are. How powerful is the choice I make? If the heart of just one man can hate and kill so many…..I wonder how powerful the same could be if love were so fervently acted upon. No wonder Jesus turned the world upside down through such a small number of men. Whole-hearted men. Does God present choices to my own heart which are any less significant than what He gave to those twelve men? Are my choices…..less powerful than theirs?

God, give me grace to believe I’m a man after Your own heart, and move my heart to act like one.

My Legacy

I think, as of right now, that I'm known by most people as a man who would stop at nothing to win---to achieve----to accomplish whatever I set my mind to.....and this troubles me. When my life is done here, I believe I'd be sad if this was my first and most memorable legacy. I am struck to the heart by this----by this burning desire given to me by God----that by the time my heart stops beating, I would rather be known by most as a man who stopped at nothing to LOVE his fellow man. O that my wife...my children...my friends and acquaintances would say Charles Georgi LOVED others more than himself!....that he spent all he had to make others rich!....that he wanted to LOSE so that others would win. Let it be so, Lord. Apart from the grace you give....such an ambition could never be realized, but with You all things are possible.
