An executive was interviewing a recent college grad for a position in his office. In an attempt to find out more about his personality, he asked "If you could have a conversation with someone, living or dead, who would it be?"
"Duh ..." the applicant quickly responded, "with the living one I guess."
That young man missed the point. But the fact is we can learn a lot by studying the lives of those who have gone before us. Great Christian men and women of the past all have something in common. They used their time in meaningful ways.
Reading the biographies of great Christians can give us insight and motivation to use our time in significant ways as well.
Scripture says, he that walketh with wise men shall be wise. Taking time to read about the heroes of our faith is a great way to redeem the time.
