During the sermon in church today, David Glusker mentioned a story about Winston Churchill. It’s probably apocryphal, but it went something like this:
An inebriated Winston Churchill to a lady at a party: “Would you spend the night with me for one million pounds?”
The lady, hesitantly: “Well…for a million pounds? I suppose so.”
Churchill: “Then would you do it for 50?”
The lady: “50?! What kind of woman do you take me for?!”
Churchill: “We’ve already established that. Now we’re simply dickering.”
This story really hit me.
What would my decisions have established about me?
Would I ever be in the place of having someone say to me “We’ve already established that…?”
