In 1971, the eyes of millions of Americans were on the Apollo 15 moon mission. You may remember the astronauts David R. Scott & James B. Irwin, who landed on the moon & spent 18 of their 66 hours there outside the spacecraft. They covered over 17 miles of the surface in a specialized vehicle people dubbed the “moon buggy.”
Upon returning to earth, James Irwin, a professed Christian believer, declared, “As I was returning, I realized that I am not a celebrity but a servant. So I am here as God’s servant on Planet Earth to share what I have experienced, that others may know the glory of God.”
Most of us will never attain the status of a James B Irwin, but all of us can have the attitude he possessed - the attitude of a servant.
