Out Live Your Life ~ Max Lucado

This book is another great read from Max Lucado. The book is centered on the book of Acts, each chapter explains a verse in Acts and how it effects your outlook on life. You can read a chapter in about 15 minutes. Each chapter gives a lesson about the verse, a good detail example, a description of how you can apply to your everyday life and ends with a verse and a prayer.

The chapters cover the following subjects: being GOD’s hands and feet, GOD’s grace, coming out of your shell, turn fear into boldness for the LORD, how to grow as a team, open your door for others, see the people who are put in your path, change your focus, hypocrisy, encouragement, bring strength and joy, accept everyone, use me to show YOUR greatness, do not show favoritism, pray, and be a faithful servant.

I feel this book is a great eye opener of how you need to see people and the world around you everyday. It makes you think about how you react to situations. I loved the prayers at each end of the chapter. I suggest you read the book through, slowly….and then go back and pick and choose to read a chapter each day to reflect on how GOD wants you to be.
