Watch video and notice the following progression of awesome! This is me trying to be a cool uncle ;-)
1. What I was supposed to do
2. (Notice my "Oh, I got this" followed by hand clap and strut
3. Me calling my shot
4. Old man attempt - massive fail
5. Result on leg
6. After nursing my leg for one full month, I started noticing my hand was sore. Thought it was sprained. Nope. Broken. Awesome!
One month later...
- The older I get, the better I was!
- Even though your mind says, "Oh, I got this!" you should always listen to your six-year-old daughter who says, "Daddy, that's not a good idea!"
- People have deeper hurts going on (more than broken bones) that they are covering up by focusing on other "surface" cuts and bruises.
- While my cast has been on, I've stressed out my other four fingers on my left hand doing things as typing. I'm realizing that when one member of your body is not doing it's job, it puts unnecessary stress on other parts of your body. Within the Body of Christ, are you causing other members to suffer because you're not pulling your weight?
- Pride really does come before a fall ;-)
These are just a handful (no pun intended) of lessons learned from my recent fall. I hope this served as a humorous reminder to pull your own weight and examine the deeper issues in your life, not just the surface scratches and bruises.
