These are three words commonly used to describe the legendary Apple founder, Steve Jobs, who died today. After hearing of his death from my wife just minutes ago, I visited Apple’s website, and true to form, I was awestruck by their simple, elegant and powerful tribute to their now fallen leader.
Steve Jobs was no doubt a rare type. He will be remembered as one of the great CEOs and business minds of our time. People will remember him for enriching their lives through brilliant technology, which closed the gap between friends, families and businesses around the world; technology that brought simple moments of pleasure to millions. The anniversary of his death will make headlines for years.
This is, of course, how we will remember him.
On the other hand, the Lord knows the real Steve Jobs, like He knows all of his children.
O Lord, truly I am your servant; I am your servant, the son of your maidservant; you have freed me from my chains. Psalms 116:16
Rest in peace, Mr. Jobs.
