Four years ago today, Billy Graham died at the age of 99. Too quickly, we forget our heroes. I never want to forget Billy Graham.
On my dad’s last birthday (June 13, 1979), Billy Graham preached in Houston’s Astrodome. I was a 19-year-old student pastor. I drove a large van, packed with close to 20 students, from our church in southeast Houston to the Dome, so they could hear Dr. Graham in person.
I have met Franklin Graham, and I’ve been with Will Graham a few times. But I never got to meet Billy Graham.
But one day I will.
We all have heroes of our faith, whose lives and ministries have touched us unto eternity. Never miss a chance to thank them while you can.
Recovery Step: The Bible says to honor those whom God has used to bless you (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13). Find someone to honor today and then do it while you can.
