What does God expect of us? Jesus called his disciples to change the world. Are we called to do the same?

Richard Stearns is the CEO of World Vision. He starts the book with how God called him to that and then talks about the way God has been working on his heart to change his views of the poor in our world and what others have done to change the lives of people who live in poverty.

Really, really good book.

Quotes Becky Liked

Richard Stearns
“What has God given you? Moses had a stick, David had a slingshot, and Paul had a pen. Mother
Teresa possessed a love for the poor; Billy Graham, a gift for preaching; and Joni Eareckson
Tada, a disability. What did they have in common? A willingness to let God use whatever they
had, even when it didn't seem very useful. If you will assess what you have to offer in terms
of your time, your treasure, and your talents, you will have a better understanding of how you
might uniquely serve.”

Richard Stearns
“A church that's lost it's voice for justice is a church that's lost it's relevance in the world.”
