Overview

Introduction by Rick Warren"

A handwritten note from Mother Teresa hangs on my office wall. It says, 'Be holy because the God who created you is holy and he loves you.' Mother Teresa didn't just believe those words; she incarnated them . . .

By the time she wrote the note I've framed on my wall, leaders from around the world would listen to Mother Teresa. Why? I call it the Mother Teresa principle: The more you care about the powerless, the more power you have. The more you serve those with no influence, the more influence God gives you. The more you humble yourself, the more you're honored by others. This is the great lesson I hope you'll learn from this book.

Jesus said it this way, in Mark 8:35 : "If you insist on saving your life, you will lose it. Only those who throw away their lives for my sake and for the sake of the Good News will ever know what it means to really live."

Don't just read this book. Let it change the direction of your life. Let it cause you to investigate the One who so transformed Mother Teresa that she was able to walk away from everything we spend our lives trying to attain. Discover her motivation, her method, but most of all, her Master.

On this 100th anniversary of her birth, I leave you with my favorite Mother Teresa quote: 'God doesn't ask us to do great things. He asks us to do small things with great love.' Find a place to do that today.
