What an amazing read! Bob Goff does a great job of demonstrating what it is to actually live out the love Jesus spoke about!
And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”Mark 12:30-31 NLT
For my entire life I have been a lover by words, this was my way of making myself feel good without actually doing anything to help out. This book has been a real eye opener, with so many people around me hurting, the best I have done is send a text message saying things like ,”praying for you” or “let me know if there is anything I can do for you.” No one has ever actually responded with any type of request but I’ve gone on with my life feeling pretty good about myself. As I read this book I imagined what life would be like if Jesus were to love me in that manner? Knowing I went through a life changing circumstance like losing a long time job, or losing a family member, or maybe a loved one fell to a terrible sickness, and all Jesus does is send me a text message saying,”PRAYING FOR YOU.” Words without action are meaningless and Bob does a great job of living love and not just talking about it. This will definitely be a book I will continue to come back to in the years to come.
