Max Lucado has long been an author I enjoy. His books have nuggets of truth throughout that make me want to underline and re-read. His latest, Out Live Your Life, is no exception. It is the common thread of how God chooses to use ordinary people just like us to live out His plan. I love that - you don't have to be anything special - you just have to be willing. Lucado backs it all up with scripture and examples of people God used that were just like us! This was an inspiring read - a good challenge for all of us - all we need to be is willing!!
These are difficult days in our world's history. 1.75 billion people are desperately poor, natural disasters are gouging entire nations, and economic uncertainty still reigns across the globe. But you and I have been given an opportunity to make a big difference. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope? Infiltrated all corners with God's love and life? We are created by a great God to do great works. He invites us to outlive our lives, not just in heaven, but here on earth. Let's live our lives in such a way that the world will be glad we did.
