Insignificant: A Q&A with Author Chris Travis

Cambodia to start an organization that helps rescue dozens of women and girls from sex trafficking. A hug. Everyone's life matters more than we can imagine.

Why is it important for people to understand what matters to God?

So many people run the risk of wasting their lives. That sounds harsh, but the world's view of significance is a siren song, and leads to disappointment. On the other hand, if you catch even a glimpse of what really matters, it can make your whole life matter. Seemingly mundane tasks become important. The daily grind can actually be a part of a grand adventure. And we won't miss the opportunities to make a real difference. Anyone who has ever asked him or herself, "What's the point?" would benefit from looking at what God says about what's really important. And there are so many people who are doing the right things and fighting the right fights who need to be encouraged and reminded of how much they matter. Understanding God's view of significance can make the difference between an ordinary life and a life that changes things forever.
