Requesting the Doable

Where do you think the world will be in 70 years?...What investment would God want you to make in the future of your world, as a testimony to your faith in God? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1109).

God never asks me to make an investment I cannot make. The spiritual investments he asks of me sometimes entail investments of material resources—but never outside the realm of what is doable. To put it in a crass way, he never wants me to purchase a million dollar yacht when all I can afford is a row boat. The row boat can adequately accommodate both symbolic and practical significance. To put it another way, God demands my best efforts within the realm of the doable, not the impossible.
