You’re Obligated

You’re Obligated

Several things converged in my thinking last week:

  • Receiving news that a tribute I wrote 8 years ago about one of my high school teachers is still of my blog’s most-read posts
  • Observing the success of a couple of proteges after I moved on
  • An acute awareness of the major contribution to my life by my parents, that high school teacher and others
  • The movie “Till the Clouds Roll By” – a 1946 film about the life of composer Jerome Kern (Showboat and others) telling the story of the investments made in his life by others – and his contribution to still more behind him.
  • The indescribable gift of the One whose life we celebrated Easter Sunday, and what His key followers gave to the world after Him.

I’m obligated.  You probably are too –  if you stop and think about it.
