Recently the Trumps purchased Kluge Estate Winery, here in central Virginia. Apparently they are interested in becoming wine makers. Wine making and the presidency are very different interests. There is a lesson to be learned from the Trumps.
Each one of us are uniquely and wonderfully made in the image of God with a wide variety of interests and passions. Often we feel that because we are interested in a certain thing we cannot pursue our other interests. We often plot our path with just one interest in mind. This limits the possibilities of our living. We have been fearfully and wonderfully made. We need to celebrate the passions that God has ignited within us rather than limiting ourselves. We need to be willing to explore and develop new interests, hobbies, and passions so that we can develop more fully into the people God created us to be.
Maybe that is part of our fascination with Donald Trump. His diverse interests have led to an incredible amount of fortune. By pursuing our own interests we may find that our lives are indeed richer than if we had just stuck to predictable interests. Go for the new thing. Be brave. Be daring. Be the person God has created you to be.
