If anyone knows me, they know that I'm the farthest thing from a Numbers guy. The title of this post is how I picture them in my head. Menacing no-good-for-nothings....confusing little nemesis's....At last week's Bible distribution, 3 churches came together for our largest, and most profound distribution yet. As we rounded off 800 Bibles and make a good dent towards reaching 900, I had a moment when a fleeting thought crossed my mind, "Wow. That's alot of Bibles! We've done alot of work this year!"
It was at precisely that moment that God arranged for my 12-year old son to walk up to me, who IS a Numbers guy, and say, "Wow! Just think Dad, pretty soon you'll have given out 1000 Bibles, and then you'll have reached less than 1/9000th of the population of Haiti - HA!!"
That struck him as particularly funny.
Yep. The equivalent of .01111111111% Ahhhhh - Humble Pie. I remember what that tastes like now.
