If you are looking for one of those life changing, life altering books, Leonard Sweet has given us a great recipe for a new life. A life more abundant. One that we have been missing and putting on hold for so long now.
In "What Matters Most" we learn that relationships top everything. Without relationships we cannot share the gospel. Without relationships we cannot love. In giving of ourselves we open the door for God to do His work in our lives and the lives of others. In relationships we learn the most important things, love, forgiveness and grace.
I truly loved this book. It is at the top of my favorites list and one that I will repeatedly go back to for wisdom.
We seem to let people fall through the cracks in our standing for the rules. How did we get where we are in this world today? By doing exactly that. Allowing people to fall through the cracks. We know the gospel. We know we are to share it, but we fail to do so and we must get out of our box, remove ourselves from our circle of comfort and put ourselves out there.
We were not created to be alone. We need people and yes, they need us. God designed us this way. There are such great nuggets of wisdom to carry away from this book. I encourage you to pick up a copy today.
