RETOOL was chosen as the book’s title because it can be applied to both MAF aircraft and followers of Christ. The word “retool” means to adapt or alter something to make it more useful. Skillful modifications over time can profoundly impact the ability of airplanes and people to fulfill their purposes.
As followers of Jesus, we too need to be retooled for the mission God has given us. We are called to love others as Jesus did, to let our light shine so that others glorify God, to be holy as He is holy. But we are frail and fallible disciples, our hearts in constant need of God’s skillful and patient work.
