I realized that I tend to operate in what is most comfortable to me - change is a scary word to my heart. Max weaved his words in a way that caused me to look inside without feeling judged...but also showed me that I was made to be more than I am allowing myself to be. That I was created with a purpose and reason...and while I am living out a large part of that purpose in the raising of our kids, there is much in this world that God also would like me to open my eyes to.
I love how he writes...humor enough to make you smile, stories enough to engage your mind and Truth enough to make you stop and have a conversation with the One who most would like to hear from you. Classic, Max!
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.
