Miles McPherson encourages students to be givers, not takers

Pastor and former NFL player Miles McPherson inspired students at Liberty University’s Convocation on Wednesday to have a lifestyle characterized by giving rather than taking.
McPherson began by engaging students with an interactive dialogue, asking, “Who’s the man?” Students replied, “Jesus,” setting the tone that Jesus is the source of all blessing.
“God blesses you so you can be a source of blessing to someone else —you are a distributor of blessing, not a destination,” McPherson said.
McPherson is the pastor of the Rock Church in San Diego, Calif. He played for the San Diego Chargers from 1982-86. After years immoral living and drug use, McPherson realized he was empty inside and in 1984 decided to give his life to Christ. Today he has many ministries reaching the San Diego community and is the author of several books.
