I am still humbled by two things about Scott Sauls (Mentor #8) – the first teacher I ever really sat under; regularly and happily.
1. He let me preach in 2004 – when I was a 27 year old youth pastor who had a passion for the darkest chapter (humanly speaking) in the Bible. Thanks Scott.
2. He had an illustration that unnerves me: Scott could sit on the couch and eat an entire box of cheez-its and it was because he wanted the feeling of being full. He did it because there are places in him that do not believe that he is a mess, but so loved… He eats boxes of cheez its because he doesn’t believe the Gospel in a deep fashion. Me Too. Me Neither.
