It's been said that you should praise in public and chastise in private. Well, this is the most public forum I have to praise my man!
I sat in Sunday School yesterday beaming from ear to ear watching him work. He was teaching for the first time since Little Rock, and he couldn't have been happier! He wasn't happy because he was the one up front...or because he was funny and getting laughs...or because when he asked a question, people responded. He was happy because he was once again able to share what the Bible says about marriage, family, God. He was happy because he was working within his gifting.
Ben was terrific and the Lord spoke through him to all of us. Ben might not have been happier, but I couldn't have been more proud!
