On Assumptions, Faith & Logic

From chapter 4 of Wild Goose Chase

"Don't put an eight-foot ceiling on what [God] can do." (pg. 74)

"Faith is not logical. But it isn't illogical either. Faith is theological. It does not ignore reality; it just adds God into the equation. . . . Faith is not mindless ignorance; it simply refuses to limit God to the logical constraints of the left brain." (pg. 79)

"It's never too late to become who you might have been." (pg. 79)

"Living generously is way too fun and way too exciting. Too many of us allow a scarcity mentality to keep us in the cage. We assume that the more we give, the less we'll have. That's an unbiblical assumption." (pg. 87)

"Abraham is the patron saint of Wild Goose chases. He had no idea where he was going, but he did not let that keep him in the cage. By faith he ventured into the unknown. He left behind his family, his home, and his assumptions." (pg. 90)

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have that kind of faith? Wow.
