The commander was a man who saved Paul's life from a group of violent men. This commander knew how to get things done. I don't know what he believed faith-wise, but God used him to protect Paul.
This morning prior to reading this story I was thanking God for a woman who came into our lives briefly who did some really good things for us. And then I began thinking of all the people God has placed in our lives in the past and now in the present who have touched my life and my family's life. I am so thankful.
As this year comes to a close, think back on the people who made a difference. Think about thanking them.
And then look forward to 2011. What possibilities there are for us to impact others and for others to impact our lives!
2011 is going to be a great year. I just know it.
