Yesterday, I read an exerpt of Bob Goff's soon-to-be-released book, Love Does, on Donald Miller's blog. Bob is the founder of Restore International (one of the six organizations on the Give Now page) and one of the most encouraging Tweeters that I follow. I'm really looking forward to this book, which releases May 1. You can find the rest of the excerpt here, but this is just a tiny part that resonated with me in a big way:
We are the means, the method, the object, and the delivery vehicles. God can use anyone, for sure. If you can shred on a Fender or won “Best Personality,” you’re not disqualified—it just doesn’t make you more qualified. You see, God usually chooses ordinary people like us to get things done.
