Delightful People

As for the holy people . . .
my delight is in them.
   —Psalm 16:3

Each year, the Glide Foundation auctions a lunch date with renowned investor Warren Buffett. The winning bid in 2016 was $3,456,789.

If lunch with Buffett is beyond your reach, you may want to talk to San Francisco entrepreneur Trevor Traina. He set up lunch meetings with Mike Tyson before his last fight at $50,000 a pop. He’ll get you a meeting with singer Shakira for $15,000 or a thirty-second personalized video message from football legend Joe Montana for just $1,450.

“How excellent are the Lord’s faithful people! My greatest pleasure is to be with them” (Ps 16:3).

Things should be used, not loved.
People should be loved, not used.
