No, no, I just couldn't. It possessed me all day.
Everybody knows about VeggieTales, but I don't know if everybody knows THIS story.
It was a great dream, but one that became an idol for Phil and ended up defining him instead of his relationship with God.
I could relate to his background and how he felt like he had to "produce" in order to be a great Christian. I loved this line, "I had grown up drinking a dangerous cocktail - a mix of the gospel, the Protestant work ethic, and the American dream."
He goes on to say, "The more I thought about my intense drive to build Big Idea (his company) and change the world, the more I realized I had let my "good work" become an idol that defined me. Rather than finding my identity in my relationship with God, I was finding it in my drive to do "good work.""
You'll never look at Bob and Larry the same way again.
And that's a good thing.
