What Matters to you

Because he soars!

The Christian Science Monitor

"And why do you like Michael Jordan?" That was the question I put to some friends when the professional basketball player recently retired. "He's the best!" one said. "I love his haircut!" piped another. But one girl caught it just right, I think. She said: "I love him because he soars!"

And if you've ever witnessed one of Jordan's graceful, swooping dunk shots, you'll understand what that child meant. Witnessing such mastery can cause all of us to want to do some soaring of our own. But can we?
