We are all looking for significance and meaning in our lives. The world tells us that this comes from dreaming big, achieving personal success and making a big impact. But the Bible says that self-worth is found in knowing our Creator, and contentment is found in discovering his purpose for our lives.
This book reminds us that when we know Jesus, we are free from the world’s definition of success. We can listen to God’s word and direct our dreams towards the things that he says matter most, even if they are small and unimpressive in the world’s eyes.
Celebrate the dreams God has for us: serving others, investing in individuals and living faithfully. Although these things seem small, their impact will be bigger, and their rewards will be better, than anything we could dream for ourselves.

In an age of the cult of the big and spectacular, this book summons the reader to a radical reversal of common values. If, as a Reformer once said, wisdom consists in the knowledge of God and of ourselves, then the author has built upon that premise and provided a surefooted guide to life and the future. In a doctrinally imaginative and biblically rooted way, Seth Lewis argues compellingly for a reassessment of dreams, priorities, and perceptions. This is a great book to give to anyone thinking about the meaning of life and what it truly means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
