What Colour Is Your Parachute?

Many years ago I enjoyed reading Richard Nelson Bolles' inspiring book What Colour Is Your Parachute? Next year it will be published in its 40th edition.

In an interview in Christianity Today, Bolles concluded with this:
As Phillips Brooks, a 19th-century Episcopal priest, said, Do not look for tasks equal to your strength, but for strength equal to your tasks. The strength, the call, and the skills are gifts from God. And when times are tough, God's grace gives us all the strength we need.
