Loose Hold

By Dean C. Collins

(From our series “The Best or Worst Advice I’ve Ever Received.”)

My late friend and mentor Smith Lanier gave me my best advice. He once told me: “I have learned that whatever God gives you in life, you must hold with open and loose hands. Never clinch your fist around his gift. Whether he gives you money or an idea, a talent or property, you must remember that everything is really his and he gives it to be used for his purposes.”

Dean C. Collins serves as president with Point University, West Point, Georgia.
