High school seniors, are you wondering how you can make a difference in the world with your future? Today on Home School Heartbeat, host Mike Farris offers his best advice for graduates!
When I entered law school, I had been well prepared to argue for a conservative, original understanding of the Constitution and to be confident and unashamed about my position. But one Sunday, I felt convicted by the Holy Spirit. It went like this: So everybody in this law school knows you are a constitutional conservative. When are you going to tell anyone that you are a Christian?
I was really convicted, and the next day, I took a sheet from my legal pad and wrote on it: Anyone interested in starting a law student’s Bible study, call Mike Farris, and gave my phone number. That was it. I didn’t stand on a street corner and preach. I just posted a sign for a Bible study.
The word quickly circulated that this “Farris guy” was some kind of born-again Christian.
Sometime later, I called a local attorney named Ray Eberle to ask him to come speak at our Bible study. I had heard he was a Christian and thought he would be an encouragement to the law students.
He accepted saying, “I have heard about your Bible study. Sure, I will speak. Would you like a job?” I said yes.
That was my entire job interview, word for word.
Next time, I’ll tell you where that single sheet of legal paper led me. I’m Mike Farris.
