Meet Jason (aka “Ding Dong”).
He’s my wiser, cooler, more capable dancer, older brother. And I love him. A lot.
You see, Jason isn’t just any older brother. He’s a teacher.
He’s funny, without a doubt. But more than that, he’s caring, compassionate, gracious, and one of the most humble people I know. He’s diligent and disciplined. He’s quick to listen and slow to speak. He genuinely seeks to serve those around him. He has patience beyond reason and he loves completely.
More than all of this; more importantly than any of the above: He is passionately in love with Jesus. He is unabashedly and wholeheartedly after the heart of God. And of all the things that I have learned from him, this is the one thing that I have sought to immulate more than anything else.
He has been the best kind of older brother; learning lessons and passing them on when he didn’t even know it. I’m grateful to follow his shadow.
Happy birthday, Bro. I love you more every year.
