Do You Wish You Were A Genius? (Leighton)

July 5, 2016

I saw Genius yesterday, the movie about Thomas Wolfe and his relationships..

Wolfe was a genius of a writer…Look Homeward, Angel et al.

But he was a loser in relationships – estranged from both his lover (Mrs. Stein) and his editor, Maxwell Perkins.

I’d rather not be a genius if that’s what it takes.
Jim Elliot, one of my student day heroes, who offered his life taking the love of Jesus to Auca Indians said, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to keep what he cannot lose.”

Wolfe was a genius. Elliot was a wise man.
