From "What's Best Next" by Matt Perman

Reading through What's Best Next: How the gospel transforms how you get things done. Some of the best quotes are when he quotes others:

Aimless, unproductive Christians contradict the creative, purposeful, powerful, merciful God we love. - John Piper, Desiring God

Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest. - Proverbs 6:6-8

Wilberforce sat at his desk on that foggy Sunday morning in 1787thinking about his conversion and his calling. Had God saved him only to rescue him from hell? He could not accept that. If Christianity was true and meaningful, it must not only save but serve. - Charles Colson, preface to Wilberforce's A Practical View of Christianity

God calls us to be abundant in doing good, but you don't have to run to the hills and leave the world to do this good. - Matt Perman

No man has the right to be idle...[W]here is it in such a world as this that health, and leisure, and affluence may not find some ignorance to instruct, some wrong to redress, some want to supply, some misery to alleviate? - William Wilberforce
