I tried really hard to hate this book, but man, oh man, is it good.

Simple, concise, a bit of funny and chock full of wisdom.

This Quote from the book was my favorite and its in the back at the A-HA moment where Andy Stanley, Pastor and Pastors kid, states “Wisdom begins when we recognize the God is God and then respond accordingly. The proper response, of course, is surrender.”

 

The quote: Every single day we benefit from the way God designed things to work. Everything we claim to have created in our human endeavors finds its ultimate source in something God created that we simply discovered and manipulated. Every time we take a breath, we declare our dependency upon and submission to the Father physically. Why then are we hesitate to submit our will? …..The beginning of wisdom is recognition of and submission to the One who designed things to work the way things work. 

The chapters explain how the best question ever relates to time, money and morality.

I love the way he explains the 5 things we do with our money

  1. spend it
  2. repay debt
  3. pay taxes
  4. save it
  5. give it

and how that list should be flipped upside down according to the best question ever.

The making a list with the four words:

Physically

Relationally

Professionally

Spiritually

and writing behind them one thing you can begin doing that, if done consistently, would have a positive effect on that component of your life.

You have to be honest when you answer questions in this book and look deep inside to answer the best question ever.

It is worth the quick read.

 

Ephesians 5: 15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.

 

A Most Uncomfortable Question and the courage to ask it.
