Choosing a Life that Matters
We live in a culture that permits everything, surrounded by people skimming the surface of life, trying to piece together meaning from ever-shifting truths and fleeting fads. But in a world that stands for nothing, you can choose to stand for Something.
With warmth and wisdom that only comes from weathering the storms of life, Dennis Rainey shares seven ways to not only build a strong foundation, but to choose to live the life of purpose and potential you were created for. When the winds of culture blow, you will be able to stand firm on the Truth. You will be able to choose a life that matters. A life that makes a difference in the here and now--a life that echoes into eternity.
You are at crossroads of culture and Christianity. Which way will you choose to live?
My thoughts: This little book started out as a commencement speech for a graduating class at a divinity school and turned into a nifty little book that reminds the reader of seven decisions they will never regret:
Seek God, not sin
Fear God, not man
Love God, not the world
Believe God, not the deceiver
Obey God, not your feelings
Worship God, not comfort
Serve God, not self.
While this is a splendid book to give to a graduate, it is also an excellent one for people of all walks of life. I enjoyed how easy it was to read through and that it was thought provoking and to the point.
I especially appreciated the chapter about obeying God and not your feelings.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
