I am thankful for people I don't know

Sometimes, you are influenced by people you don't know very well or have not met (or who are dead). I thought about how I am thankful for

  • Pastors whose messages I have listened to
  • Professors whose books I have read
  • Puritans whose prayers I have prayed
  • Theologians whose thoughts I have studied
  • Missionaries whose compassion has inspired me
  • Followers of Christ whose passion has stirred me
  • Martyrs whose dedication has humbled me

And the truth of it is they never knew of that impact on my life. Thank God for what we may not know or see in this life.
