At the closing moments of nearly every episode of Family Feud, host Steve Harvey spends a few moments making small talk with the audience, telling jokes and just chatting with the people who helped make the show possible.
But at the end of one particular taping, Harvey seemed to be feeling a bit more emotional than usual. For whatever reason, he felt the need to spread a message of hope and faith to the audience, and even though he thought the cameras weren’t filming, he still gave a performance that will easily fill the soul of anyone who watches.
For anyone who feels like they haven’t reached their full potential, and for anyone who sees people they know succeeding beyond their wildest expectations, Steve knows why: it’s because those other people made the decision to “jump.”
Steve says that you have to jump, and while your parachute won’t open right away, it eventually will. It’s important to jump, because if you spend your entire life standing safely on the edge of the cliff of success and you never jump?
“If you don’t jump, your parachute will never open. You’ll never know what God really has for you.”
Thank goodness the people at Family Feud thought to keep recording this amazing moment. The message he delivers is a very important one that comes down to one incredible word: jump.
Even if you have a lot going on in your life, you just have to jump “just one time.”
