Yesterday, Beecher told the story of one young Israelite who faced down a lion while challenging us to take four crucial steps before making big decisions. If you missed that post, be sure to check it out here.
We wanted to pass along the book that Beecher mentioned, In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day by Mark Batterson. Here’s a sneak peak:
Your greatest regret at the end of your life will be the lions you didn’t chase. You will look back longingly on risks not taken, opportunities not seized, and dreams not pursued. Stop running away from what scares you most and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path.
In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day is inspired by one of the most obscure yet courageous acts recorded in Scripture, a blessed and audacious act that left no regrets: “Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it” (2 Sam. 23:20–21 paraphrased). Unleash the lion chaser within!
