What kind of life do you want? How do you want to be remembered? What is worthy of being remembered anyway? I don’t want to come across as an overzealous fan, but let me just say this. I cannot get enough Don Miller. I have not read a book of his that I did not immensely enjoy. Miller is an absolutely fabulous writer. Read this book. Whatever your circumstance, you will want to live a better life story.
Two of my favorite quotes:
I was watching the movie Star Wars recently and wondered what made that movie so good. Of course, there are a thousand reasons. But I also noticed that if I paused the DVD on any frame, I could point toward any major character and say exactly what that person wanted. No character had a vague ambition. It made me wonder if the reasons our lives seem so muddled is because we keep walking into scenes in which we, along with the people around us, have no clear idea what we want.
Somehow we realize that great stories are told in conflict, but we are unwilling to embrace the potential greatness of the story we are actually in. We think God is unjust, rather than a master storyteller.
