Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: September 27, 2016

Dick and Rick [Hoyt] race a lot….  Team Hoyt loves races.  But only half of Team Hoyt can run….  At [Rick’s] birth in 1962, the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck, starving oxygen from his brain….  Doctors gave no hope for his development.  Dick and his wife, Judy, disagreed [and] enrolled him in public school.  He graduated.  He entered college and graduated again.  But Rick wanted to run.  At age fifteen, he asked his dad if they could enter a five-mile benefit race.  Dick was not a runner, but he was a father, so he loaded his son in a three-wheeled wheelchair, and off they went….  Other than a willing heart, [Rick makes] no contribution to the effort.  Rick depends entirely on the strength of his dad.  God wants you to do the same.
