On Sunday, Chance The Rapper made history as he cleaned up the Grammy music awards for best new artist, best rap album, and best rap performance. He revolutionized the terms of the awards because he did this all without a record label, gaining his musical acclaim by streaming his music online.
While speedily escaping enslavement from Egypt, the Jewish people found themselves trapped on the edge of the ocean as Pharaoh’s army closed in. With nowhere to go, the people desperately cried out but to no avail. Courageously, Nachshon Ben Aminadav left the dry shore and marched into the water, moving in deeper and deeper until… a great miracle occurred and the waters split.
Chance, like Nachshon, modeled that if you believe, you can achieve. Both saw potential in places few others did. Both seized the opportunity before them. And then with conviction, both accomplished the impossible.
Don't be afraid to dive in and take a chance.
