Then I thought, “I probably won’t see him again so big deal.” Plus, I was saying to myself, “The guy lives in another part of the world. I mean, hey, that’s just the way it is.”
Well, the next day I walked into this conference center for yet another day of meetings, I looked across this large room, and I saw the guy at the far end. And I looked at him and I thought, “Oh no!” And then this voice said, “Give him the pen. Give him the pen.” And I kept saying, “No, no.”
I sat there and heard this speaker speak, and then there was a little break. And during the break I was walking around, and I saw another friend of mine, this big honking guy, he is like 6’8″, 340 lbs. He used to play in the NFL, and he had a suit on.
And I said, “Sean, man, you are looking clean with the suit. I mean, how do they find a suit that big?” And we were talking and I said, “Man, that’s a cool necklace.” And then I sat down for the last part of the session, and during this last session I began to really get convicted, “Ed, give the guy the pen. Walk across the room after the conference is over and give the guy your nice, $90, blue with gold trim pen. Give it to him.”
I said. “Okay, I’m going to do it.” So the session ended. I grabbed my pen in my left hand. I mean, I had a white knuckle grip on that pen. And I am walking through the crowd across the room to give it to the guy who had complimented the pen the day earlier.
As I was walking and trying to make my way through the crowd I bumped into my big friend, you know, giant Sean, 6’8″, 340 lbs Sean. And Sean gave me a high five. It was like shaking hands with a grizzly bear. I mean, the guy is just a monster.© Copyright 2012 admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Ministry
