Holy Discontent by Bill Hybels

I read these words on the plane to Africa this summer and I'm bothered and thrilled that they ring so close and so true in my life...let's get in the game and choose to be an unstoppable force for good...that's motivating stuff for a guy whose loved sports all his life...

Whether you've been walking around on this planet for eight years or eight decades, I urge you to reflect on the one thing in the world that wrecks you when you see it, when you hear it, and when you get close to it. Because your one thing is the exact thing that will create enough tension and angst, carve out enough capacity for activism, and stir up enough of an internal firestorm that you'll have no choice but to suit up and get in the game.

If you're alive as you're reading this—and I presume that you are—then God has a few good works for you to wrap your life around. Opt out, friends, and miss the most important opportunity of your earthly existence to be an unstoppable force for good in this world.
