WEIRD: Because Normal Isn’t Working

Do you want to be normal? In our culture today, ‘normal’ looks like this: debt, addiction, busyness, stress… If you’re abnormal or weird, what does that mean? Here are some quotes from the book.

  • Time
    “If you want a normal life, do what normal people do. If you want to know God intimately, walk with Him daily, and please Him in every way, you’re going to have to do what few do. Absolutely nothing. If you’re addicted to your schedule and accomplishments, it’s time to do something drastic to break out.”
  • Money
    “Giving generously changes you. It frees you up, undermines the power that money and possessions can have over you, and it makes you more like Him.”
  • Relationships
    “If you ride the biggest roller coaster in the world, the kid’s ride at the county fair won’t scare you. If you live through a hurricane and a tornado, a spring rain won’t intimidate you. And when you truly know the God of the universe, people’s opinions will no longer hold you hostage.”
  • Values
    “God’s blessings aren’t always bigger, better, and beautiful. In fact, I truly believe that God gifts His chosen leaders with a very unusual blessing. You might even call it a weird blessing because most of the time we call it… a burden.”
