The One Place You Must Never Settle

“One of the nuanced skills of people who maximize their capacity and optimize their impact on the world is that they know which battles not to fight. They know which ground to give up. They know where to settle. This is not because they’re postured for compromise; it’s because they have a clarity about what really matters to them. They know what their lives are about. They have profound intention, and that intention informs every arena of their lives. Those who care about everything actually care about nothing. … 

“In the end, the one thing where you must never settle for less is the calling that God has on your life, the purpose for which He has created you, the impact He designed you to make in the world. … 

“Is it possible that God is waiting to do more then we could ever ask or imagine and is looking throughout the earth for someone who refuses to settle?” —Erwin McManus, in The Last Arrow

    Very powerful and very profound quote. Sounds like, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” (John 4: 34)
