Sir Isaac Newton was once famously quoted as saying, “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” Those who have done great things in the 21st century, and those of us who have simply tried to live our lives well, are indebted to the giants of the past. In every field of study there have been men and women who have gone before those of us living today. It is these giants who have forged a path to greatness. This scenario is not only true in the secular sense. For those of us who claim Christ, we are indebted to the pastors, missionaries, scholars, lay servants, and countless martyrs who have gone before us.
