>Don’t Criticize Until You Have Been There…

>…or at least willing to be there….

Read this in an interview with former Navy SEAL Howard Wasdin in the May 23 issue of “Time.” He http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=jacksjots-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=031269945X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrresponds to question, “So why did the team make the choice to kill Osama bin Laden?:

“The guys in the room made that decision. If you want to be in a position to make those
types of decisions, go join the team.
Otherwise, just say thank you.”
Methinks that applies to any other profession/calling…like housewife, parent, quizmaster, preacher, youthworker, etc
If you think you need to second guess people who have to make decisions; zippeth thy lip unless and until you’ve “been there, done that” or at least are willing to put the effort into it.
By the way, I just looked at the reviews; and just ordered the book. It was scheduled to be published long before the Bin Laden operation, so it’s not a quick get it out and make money; the guy has been there, and it looks fascinating. Buy it (and, if you do, buy it off the link so I can make a few cents 🙂

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
