One problem with man is that we would rather conform Jesus to our views and values than have Him transform ours.

Today in History: Apple Was Founded, 1976
On April 1, 1976 — 39 years ago today — Apple was founded as a personal computer manufacturer by Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, and Ronald Wayne. Wozniak and Jobs had met 5 years earlier, and they both shared an interest in technology that empowered individuals (and a joy of playing pranks on people). Jobs recognized that Wozniak had the skills required to build a personal computer and persuaded Wozniak to partner in an effort to develop and market such computers. Showing early signs of business ingenuity, Jobs convinced a local computer store to place an order for 50 personal computers, payable upon delivery. Next, Jobs went to a national electronic parts supplier; and, using the purchase order as a form of verifiable credit, Jobs ordered the components needed for Wozniak to assemble the personal computers. Without any money, without any investors, Jobs had effectively launched Apple. However, Jobs was only 21; Wozniak was 25. So Jobs asked Ronald Wayne, an older, more experienced, business friend (with whom Jobs had worked at Atari while Jobs was in high school), to help them set up a partnership agreement and operate a business. 

After helping with the initial start-up materials — writing the manual for the personal computer, the partnership agreement (Wayne set up ownership as Wozniak 45%-Jobs 45%-Wayne 10%), and drawing the original logo, Wayne decided to leave the team. Wayne was the chief draftsman and product development engineer at Atari, and he also understood that all members of a partnership were legally responsible for any debts incurred by any partner. Because Wayne had substantially more assets than the young Jobs and Wozniak, Wayne exited the partnership; he says that he never regretted his decision, because his aim was only two help two young entrepreneurs get their business off the ground.

It is no great thing to be humble when you are brought low; but to be humble when you are praised is a great and rare achievement.

If you haven't read "A Shepherd looks at Psalm 23" by Phillip Keller, you need to do so. The author's experiences as a shepherd equipped him with the insights that form the basis for this book. I cannot say enough good things about this book. Spend the $5 for this 200 page book and be amazed by the insights you will learn.
