I began reading Don Miller’s book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years while sitting on the toilet. I bring that up because that is pretty much how I saw my life at the moment – filled with mundane, random things of little significance. It didn’t matter that I was sitting on a toilet on a plane somewhere over the Pacific Ocean; life was tedious and uninteresting. By the time I reached my destination I had completed the book – and changed my attitude. I realized that I am teaching my children to live boring stories, the complete opposite of what I was hoping to teach them.
A Million Miles in a Thousand Years is a book about Don’s life story – or at least his pursuit of one. The book reminds readers that our lives are part of a bigger story, and that our search for significance can lead to bigger stories if we will only realize the role that conflict plays in those stories. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves stories and wants to love this story we call life.
