"Let that be a lesson to you" is the author's advice in the preface of this book, given not in a judgmental tone, but rather as a loving preamble to a collection of stories and incidents from life's experiences illustrating true principles.

He uses a sky-jumping experience, for example, to illustrate the principle of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ."To let go of the airplane strut and free-fall into open space meant commitment - total commitment," the author writes. "Once I had let go, there was no looking back for help, no changing my mind, no half-hearted trial nor tentative exploring. In similar fashion, the Savior cautioned His followers: `No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God' (Luke 9:62)."
