There are days when I wonder if I had 5 people who I could invite to my dinner dead or alive who would I invite and why? Of course the first person I think of is Jesus Christ! I would have so much to ask him and I wouldn’t want to share our conversation with others at the table, I would want Jesus all to myself which means I wouldn’t want to do a 5 person dinner with him, I’d rather do a one on one sit down with him. Because of the way I would behave if I invited Jesus, I will be less dramatic and stick to someone that’s closer to our generation and someone that’s more imperfect.
With that said, my list starts now. My first person would be Abraham Lincoln. To me Abraham Lincoln is our Nations hero because of his dedication in his position in office. We weren’t in great times back then as a Nation but he did all he could to change our Nation for the better. He’s long gone but yet his spirit resides with us, especially in Washington D.C. I also respect his obedience to our Nation’s foundation which is the foundation under God. The powerful moves he made when he was president of the United States will never be forgotten and will always live on! I would have so much to ask him.
My second person would be Oprah Winfrey. Yes, I would love to have a conversation with Oprah in regards to life and living in the flow. I’m sure she would have so much wisdom to share. She literally came from nothing and made something of herself when all odds were stacked against her. Oprah has been good at understanding that little voice inside of her which to me is learning how to follow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you to your full potential and calling as well as purpose. I never was a huge fan of the Oprah Winfrey show but I enjoy her OWN network. She educates with always having a positive intent to enlighten someone in hopes that they find their greatest truth.
My third person would be Walt Disney. I would be very excited to get inside Walt Disney’s mind. I think it’s amazing how you can draw a mouse and turn it into a billion dollar business. He Is influential and how wonderful is it to be long gone and have a successful business that still make adults and kids around the world happy each and every day? Disney is everywhere and if I ever wanted to run a business, I’d sure want to call a meeting with this guy for sure, as well as Bill Gates but I wouldn’t invite Bill Gates because hes a little socially awkward.
My fourth person of course would be Michael Jackson! This man has been very influential in people’s lives, I would love to ask him how he slept at night with all his creative ideas. I’m sure he would tell me he couldn’t go to sleep without taking sleeping pills but I think it’s amazing how MJ gave of himself to better the world in any way he could through music and never once did MJ make it seem like he was Mr. untouchable, we made it known that Michael was untouchable and the media was never pleasant with him. MJ gave inspirational music pushing us forward through man in the mirror, black or white, heal the world and they don’t really care about us. He is the core of hard work and perfecting your craft. I’m just so sorry he had to leave this earth the way that he did. He helped me believe in myself specific areas of my life. He was and still is an influential person to me. He has a seat at the table for sure.
Because my dinner party is only 5 guest I’m leaving out some very powerful influential people like Benny Hen, John MacArthur, Martin Luther King, Mohamed Ali, Obama, John F Kennedy, Rosa Parks and the list goes on but I’m talking about my dinner table. I need to have dinner with those who I felt a connection with and who I believe I could relate too.
This brings me to my last and final person. You may or may not know her and she hasn’t been on TV. but I could not have dinner with out my wife. She is very influential in my life and inspires me every single day. I have never met anyone like this woman before. Michelle is giving of herself and saves lives each and every day in her profession as a nurse. She knew who she wanted to be and did not let one thing get in the way of her goals. She had our son natural with no medicine at all. She took it back in the days where we didn’t have advance technology like today. She knew what life she wanted and will be set in her late 20’s to 30’s because of her will for lack of error. God was looking out for me when he sent this special person my way.
So there it is people, my list of 5! Who would you choose and why? Thank you for reading, and please follow!
