Eugene Cho Book Giveaway: Overrated
Pastor Cho asks us to ask ourselves if we are really willing to do the work to change the world or if we just think changing the world is a nice idea. Our culture of opportunity can lead us to a feeling of entitlement. As Americans, we have the luxury of just sitting back on the blessings others have given us. Will we get up anyway? Will we get uncomfortable for Jesus' sake and in His name?
Cho does a good job of sorting out the things we do to feel good versus the things we do that do good. We need to be sure our good deeds are actually helping people with their real needs. Furthermore, he dares to point out that just posting a #hashtag on Twitter or liking a Facebook page doesn't actually do anything.
Start challenging yourself by reading this book. Then get up and actually change the world--even a little bit! You can begin by signing up for the Overrated 5-day e-mail challenge.
