Live Our Life Like This

I have been reading a book I found in one of my closets from Max Lucado called, In The Eye of The Storm; A Day In The Life Of Jesus.

He made a list of how we should live our life. It’s a pretty good list!

  • Love God more than you fear hell.
  • Once a week, let a child take you on a walk.
  • Make major decisions in a cemetery.
  • When no one is watching, live as if someone is.
  • Succeed at home first.
  • Don’t spend tomorrow’s money today.
  • Pray twice as much as you fret.
  • Listen twice as much as you speak.
  • Only harbor a grudge when God does.
  •  Never outgrow your love of sunsets.
  • Treat people like angels; you will meet some and help make some.
  • ‘Tis wiser to err on the side of generosity than on the side of scrutiny.
  • God has forgiven you; you’d be wise to do the same.
  • When you can’t trace God’s hand, trust his heart.
  • Toot your own horn and the notes will be flat.
  • Don’t feel guilty for God’s goodness.
  • The book of life is lived in chapters, so know your page number.
  • Never let the important be the victim of the trivial.
  • Live your liturgy.

This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

I’m thankful God can use us with all our flaws and imperfections. I don’t know what you’re going through today but know that God loves you and His grace is all you need!

Have a blessed Sunday!

  1. I do really well on most of these points, but your blog encourages me to spend tomorrow’s money today!!! Help!!! I got a Nordstrom card this time! I usually pay everything off-I’m going to have to stop looking at all of your cute clothes!:)

  2. I love Max Lucado! I am so fortunate to live outside of San Antinio & be able to attend his church. He is no longer the senior pastor, but he does preach occasionally. His sermons are like a “wonderful hug”.

  3. How true how true…. thanks for sharing. Looking forward to what you have for us this week😉 Enjoy the rest of your day
