No Fool

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."  Jim Elliot

One of my heroes, Jim Elliot, gave his life to the very people he prayed would be saved.  Years later, they were.  Many would consider him foolish for giving up certainty (life on earth) for unprovable beliefs (eternal salvation).  What I do know is that life and possessions are fleeting, but God is faithful and worth serving.
