    I remember hearing it while working at an government run in-patient treament centre. While I don’t think that my Christianity was overt, it was apparently known among the clients and staff. My employer, who was an atheist, told me one day that as long as I held to my Christian beliefs, I’d received the last promotion that I’d ever get in that workplace.

    Although I had no doubt that God would continue to take care of me, I found Jim Elliot’s quote tremendously encouraging.

    For what it’s worth, a few months later my employer was fired for mismanaging funds and I got his job.

    Wow. That is cool.

    I can’t really remember the first time for me, but I’m pretty sure it was at junior camp when I was eleven. The quote was very instrumental in my life as a young man and shaped my entire mentality for years after.
