How hard do you have to fall and hit rock bottom before you make the decision to stop doing whatever it is that’s satisfying you on the outside, but killing you on the inside? Christian Hosoi, an All-American professional skateboarder, lived by the creed, “Skate and Destroy.” While he found his calling in skating at an early age, he also found himself in the midst of destruction. “I was trying to destroy myself” because I was searching for love in money, fame and girls. None of it satisfied me.”
Hosoi had fame. He had money. He had it all but it was all taken. It took him losing it all to realize that freedom wasn’t in material possessions. It had nothing to do with cares of this world. He realized who and where freedom really was: in Christ.
