I have a dear friend in my life who I have always admired. I had him come speak at my church one time. I was happy when he agreed to do so and was a bit surprised since this individual is very successful and busy. I remember picking him up at the airport and grinning from ear to ear as we talked.
Our time together was amazing. He allowed me to ask him deep questions about his life, his career, mistakes, decisions, and his family. I realized in that moment that even in his 80s he was still very much growing in his walk with Christ.
