One God Idea

In my last book, Primal, I wrote a chapter titled One God Idea. It comes out of this conviction that one God idea is worth more than a thousand good ideas. Feel like I just heard a great example of a God Idea while listening to Scott Harrison at Catalyst. He’s the founder of Charity Water.

The idea is so simple: give up your birthday. You ask people to donate a gift equal to your age. That is so simple yet so powerful. Amazing to hear the story of people who are donating their birthday to charity. What a great God idea.

Check it out.
