Book Notes: Created for Work

by Bob Schultz

Favorite take-away idea (paraphrased): I am the president of the country of Self, and need to make sure each department is running well.

Note to self, the current U.S. departments are: agriculture, commerce, defense, education, energy, health, security, housing, interior, justice, labor, state, transportation, treasury, and veterans.

Favorite quotes:

"Frequently God disguises Himself as trouble, problems, and difficulty. The wise look past those costumes and see provision, growth, and a good education."

"The faithful thank God and overcome."

"I do have an exit strategy for my marriage.

"Well, at lest I still own something.
What's that?
A good attitude."

"Limit your possessions to what you can keep in a reasonable condition. Plan time to enjoy and maintain what you have before spending time and money to get more."

"The question isn't "Does God speak?" but "Will I listen?""

"Your life may seem as small as a matchbox. Who cares? The size of your box does not limit what Jesus might create in it... Yield to Him and you'll be amazed at His imagination and creativity." This made me think of the intricacies of the atom.
