I didn’t want to purchase Bob Goff’s book, LOVE DOES. Sorry Bob. I’ve heard him speak (amazing) and read the positive reviews on his book. Still didn’t buy it. Why? I was afraid it was a “you’re gonna feel guilty about not doing more” kinda book. Since I don’t enjoy feeling guilty, I didn’t get the book.
Last week a friend sent me a copy so I figured it was time to quit avoiding it. This weekend I read it . . . actually, I devoured it.
It surprised me. After all, I didn’t expect to discover a Washington D.C. lawyer who skateboards to work, occasionally offices at Disneyland’s Tom Sawyer Island, and is passionately attempting to rescue an entire generation of exploited children in Uganda and India.
I finished the book inspired to pray “impossible prayers”.
Today, I want to mail YOU a copy. Seriously.
Bob’s unbelievable stories make this book a page turner! Here are a few inspiring quotes:
“I used to be afraid at failing at the things that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at the things that don’t matter.”
“I want to step up to the plate and swing so hard that I hit a home run or when I miss my bat comes around and hits the umpire in the back of the head.”
“When we accept life’s invitation to participate, it’s contagious too. Other people will watch us and start seeing life as something more amazing, more whimsical than before.”
“Lots of people who trust God seem to be wired to live near the edge.”
“God delights in answering our impossible prayers.”
I want to mail you a copy of this book. Why? I believe in this message.
