Surprisingly busy week! But I did manage to read the rest of Part 1 of Mark Wilson's new book, Purple Fish at my son's swim meet last night. My first post on it is here.
Here is a nugget from each chapter:
"Jesus is our ultimate purple fish." "When you find purple-fish Jesus, you've found all you need."
"You can't be full of Jesus when you're full of other things."
I'll just tease you with this punchline: "'Yeah,' Luke replied before I could cover his mouth. 'Mom prayed... but Dad didn't believe it could happen.'" "The gospel is better than the best news you've ever received."
"Don't hide your brokenness... Perhaps you will find a treasure there."
Teaser: "My roots go back to hillbillies, rabble-rousers, and moonshiners." "When it's personal, it's interesting."
"Distressed couples are marriage missionaries in the making..."
Teaser response to evangelism done well: "One of the daughters ran down the hall after me... She fumbled in her purse, pulled out a five dollar bill, and said, 'Here, go have a beer on me.'"
