objective truth from...starbucks?

Last week I swung through Starbucks en route to the doctor. I can't say much for the state of my heart...I certainly wasn't viewing doctors as a means of grace. The barista must have seen "sin of ungratefulness" emanating from me. I think she said "would you like some conviction with that?" Anyway, later as I sat in the room of perpetual anticipation I read the following:
"The Way I See It #196
The greatest leader is a servant. Don't be a boss.
Be a real leader, a servant leader.
A servant leader is a winner. Even when he loses everything, even when he loses his life, a servant leader wins it all. --Pat Williams "
Even though it doesn't say "Christ died for sinners" it immediately brought the gospel to mind. I was convicted in my non-rejoicing attitude. Doctors are a gift. An undeserved one. How kind of Him to interrupt my little grumbling fest, and in such a lighthearted way. I laughed. God is so kind. Who says He doesn't have a sense of humour?
..theend..

{{ps. ya'll will be delighted to know that green bay is 6-1. we're not underdogs this year! yeah baby. i watch them play with real hope, instead of pleading for a swift death. proof that God cares about such menial things as football?}}
