The Ballad of Big Mike

Michael Oher is an amazing, inspiring modern rags-to-riches story. I loved the movie about his life which is based on the book Blind Side, so now that I've read this article, I'm going to have to read the book too. It sounds like a fairy tale, but it is really a story of a kid working amazingly hard to please the only folks who loved him, and they loved him because as Christians, it was what God asked them to do.

Michael Oher's story demonstrates many truths that are being rejected by today's society. A stable, two-parent family is essential to a child's success. Hard work pays off. A Christian school turned his life around, not government schools. It was Christian people who took him in and loved him. God had a plan for this boy, down to the design of his body and soul, which came to fruition through the obedience of His servants.
