Will You Just Sit There? Or Make a Difference?

I have always been a fan of Max Lucado. He definitely has a gift with his writing. God has blessed him with the way he is able to use his words. Sometimes he makes us laugh, sometimes we even cry.
I knew when "Out Live Your Life" hit the shelves it was going to be a book that would do nothing less than challenge me.
He eliminates any excuse the reader might have about whether he/she can make a difference. He uses examples in history as well as from the Bible to prove that we indeed can make a huge impact on this world if we choose to. He shows us that anything is possible with Divine Guidance. Lucado challenges us to get out of our self-absorbed worlds and out into the needy world around us. He tells about enough worthwhile causes/activities that most anyone can find a few they can do. You don't have to be rich or a foreign missionary or even talented to make a lasting difference in this world....and the next (Heaven). "Are you more dinghy than cruise ship?...More blue jeans than blue blood? Congratulations. God changes the world with folks like you." While Lucado may not spell out exactly what you personally should be doing this book should aid you in your reflection.
Max Lucado incorporates each chapter with biblical examples and scripture to help the reader grasp the reality that God can and will do extraordinary things through ordinary people.
You will not be able to sit comfortably by after reading Out Live Your Life if you have allowed any part of this book to soak in. I definitely recommend this book! I received this book from in exchange for my review.
