The Model Moonwalker

With our nation celebrating the anniversary of the moon landing this past week, I was reminded that I had the privilege of meeting Astronaut and Colonel Buzz Aldrin several years ago at a conference where he was being recognized as an award recipient and I had been given the opportunity to share some music earlier in the day.

What I didn’t know at the time I met him and just learned this past weekend (on the always-amazing Crossroads Radio) was that Buzz Aldrin gave God the credit for every part of the space mission. He even made arrangements in advance to have communion on the moon!

And when he was headed back to earth, exactly 50 years ago today, he read aloud Psalm 8: 3-4: “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou has ordained; What is man that thou art mindful of him? And the Son of Man, that thou visitest Him?”

There are a many verses in the Bible that speak to the act of being humble-James 4:10–Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up; Ephesians 4:10–Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love; and 2 Chronicles 7:14–If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

To me, Buzz Aldrin is a model example of being humble. He had been part of the first mission to the moon. He had walked on moon. Yet he gave all the credit and honor to the One who made the moon.
