CJ: I've got 10 kids; 7 are adopted from China.Mr. I: Why in the h... would you do that?
CJ: Well, sir, there are millions of children in China alone needing a family.
Mr. I: Well, adopting 7 won't make a difference.
CJ: Tell that to them.
Mr. I: Tell it to who?
CJ: My 7 children.
Mr. I: Tell it to the 3 you didn't adopt when they lose out.
CJ: Lose out on what?
Mr. I: Their inheritance.
CJ: What's an inheritance?
Mr. I: That's what it's all about.
CJ: Sir, my inheritance isn't on this earth.
So, it was a seed. Probably planted on rocky soil but nonetheless, it was a seed.
Thanks, C.J. Good reminders for me as well: Adopting one child changes the whole world for that child. Whatever I may give up here is not worth anything compared to adding to the treasures in heaven.
