The win: A second-cousin of mine feels a conviction within that tells him, "That's not right." He steps up and offers the man a job.
I really encourage you to read the story via these links:
Look, I understand how business works... I know you don't intentionally want to work against advertising money your business has spent.
This story is about more than that, though.
What I'd offer you is the same challenge - is the greatest thing we can have an allegiance to really a football team? Or perhaps in your life, is it a school district, political party, or entertainment choice?
When do we stop trying to prove that we're in the right, and simply do what's right?
It can be a big news-making story like it was for this man and my cousin Guy, or it can be a quiet consistency you resolve to live your life by. This past week I resolved to stop watching yet another TV show that has content I simply can't affirm as a Christian. Granted, it's right in the middle of a story arc, and I'd really like to know how it turns out. But... and pardon me for saying this... so freaking what?
Disagree if you'd like, but consider this - there's a reason both headlines made the news... which one will you be a part of?
Is your conviction to the fiction?
Or is your ideal about something Real?
