Every human being is making a request of their friends,
though it usually goes unspoken.
Here's what they ask:
Motivate me, call out the best in me.
Speak truth to me and remind me of my deepest values.
Help me achieve my greatest potential.
Tell me again what God called me to be, what I might yet become.
~ John Ortberg
