Last night was the last Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, only after a mere 7 months of him inheriting this honorable seat in the world of late night programming. It all started when NBC decided to bump O’Brien out of the time slot he deserved and restore Jay Leno into the slot he promised to give to Conan five years ago.
It is a shame that NBC bullied O’Brien into this unfortunate position that forced him to leave, but O’Brien did not leave the show with anger and cynicism, but with much joy and thanksgiving.
There’s really a lot we as Christians can learn from Conan O’Brien about humility, grace, and truth.
Yes, Conan, you are right. Cynicism does not lead us anywhere. It never does. It is true that only hard work, gratitude, and kindness can lead us to amazing things in life.
