A Long Shadow
By Rick Boxx
September 17, 2010
Manute Bol was a big man who left a long shadow. Unfortunately, this NBA basketball star, who measured 7 foot 7 inches tall, died at an early age due to kidney failure related to diseases contracted in his home country of Sudan.
Although Manute is no longer with us, his passion and his work for serving the poor in Sudan soars. In spite of his death, money continues to pour into his favorite ministry, Sudan Sunrise.
His sacrificial life put a national spotlight on his work for the poor, which has sparked incredible generosity.
Proverbs 29:7 teaches, "The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern."
Mr. Bol leveraged his basketball talents for the poor. How might we use our talents to do likewise?
