Book Review: Cure for the Common Life

Again, Thomas Nelson was generous enough to send me a complimentary copy of Cure for the Common Life by Max Lucado for me to read and review.  Again, I am just blown away at the way he can say things so clearly for me to understand.  The whole focus of this book is to get you thinking about what YOU can do for the One who made you.  He encourages you not to focus on others and what they can do, but to find your “sweet spot,” fall in love with the God, and then do it with all of your might.  He encourages you to develop your S.T.O.R.Y and tell it for all the world to hear! S.T.O.R.Y is your strengths, topic, optimal conditions, relationships and, then, to say yes!  So many people today are not in love their job and what they do.  How can you show Christ to others if you have a sour attitude each day?  Find your “sweet spot.”  Not just find it but make it YOURS and yours alone and then live each life for the glory of God.  I can’t wait to reread this book and digest it more in a deeper study.
