    “A marketable idea doesn’t have to be a big, groundbreaking idea; it just has to provide a solution to a problem or be useful enough that other people are willing to pay for it. Don’t think innovation; think usefulness.” – I like this quote. I thought maybe if we looked for solutions to problems we will be making those ‘big, groundbreaking ideas’, anyway. This quote makes me want to look around me more at the problems and see what God is saying about them and what his solution would be and what part I play in the solution. Isn’t that being missional…
