April 23, 2010: What I Am Reading This Week

“We seldom realise fully that we are sent to fulfill
God-given tasks.  We act as if we have to choose how, where,
and with whom to live.  We act as if we were simply plopped
down in creation and have to decide how to entertain
ourselves until we die.   But we were sent into the world by
God, just as Jesus was.  Once we start living our lives with
that conviction, we will soon know what we were sent to do.”
