"Not everything that comes from heaven has your name on it. While all Christians are called to evangelize, give, serve, and pray (among other spiritual gifts), we are not all called to everything equally or gifted equally for them. Not everything that comes from heaven has your name on it. But something does." - J.D. Greear
