Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado, a review


In Outlive Your Life, we get a great combination of scripture, application and devotion all in one. Lucado takes the reader through Acts and the infant Christian church. We read about everyday people outliving their lives for the sake of others. People that don’t know us or the God we serve. They see our acts and how much we love them. This is the message Jesus came and preached. Love the people, go to the ends of the earth and tell my children about the things I have done for them. Lucado tells/asks us to get out of our shell and help the people around us, to be compassionate and loving to a harsh world we live in.

I highly recommend this book. It challenges the reader to not give “hand outs” but offer our hand, love, resources, energy and time to the people who need it. To those who can’t ask, to those who are stuck in modern day slavery, or the sex trade, or working 3 jobs to provide a better live for their kids but can’t be there after school. I know this is something He keeps bring up to me. Love. How do we love our neighbors, enemies, co workers, and community. They don’t all know Jesus. Do we reflect His glory at work? Home? To those at the grocery store?
