I’m reading a book right now, One Big Thing, which I will review for you all soon, but for now, you must ponder on this that was actually taken from another book, The Answer to How is Yes:
It is entirely possible to spend our days engaged in activities that work well for us and achieve our objectives, and still wonder whether we are really making a difference in the world. My premise is that this culture, and we as members of it, have yielded too easily to what is doable and practical and popular. In the process we have sacrificed the pursuit of what is in our hearts.
I shall add, in the process we have sacrificed the pursuit that God has planned for our lives.
