David Long

David Long died last Sunday. To many of us, he was a hero. He spent 40 years in Angola as a missionary, and many additional years teaching the Bible in North America and finally returning to his native Ireland.

I feel no sadness for him, for his pain and struggle is over. He's receiving the "well done good and faithful servant", but we remain. And this is a reminder to me that my generation should be ready to take the spiritual reins. Unfortunately we're not really ready. David Long went out as a missionary when he was half my age, and yet I still don't have the grasp on the Bible I wish I had.
