Viral videos are awesome. I stumbled across this latest one today and who knew it would encourage my socks off! On the heels of my post about making a difference, I happened to catch the video below and was amazed. While I thought it was simply some college guys filming an impossible basketball shot, an internet rabbit trail led me to their web site. Check this out from their “About Page”.

Did you catch it? “We want to use this platform for something bigger than us“. 6 college guys that follow Jesus. Man, I love that. Seriously. These guys captured the wave of video and are using it to sponsor a child through World Vision! Imagine that. Someday they will hear “Well Done” and possibly meet the child that they sponsored through this organization. All because they had a heart for Jesus and an unbelievable skill set. Romans 12:6-8 states:

6We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his[a]faith. 7If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; 8if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.

I would argue that the 6 guys from are doing just that….cheerfully! Great work guys.
