Max Lucado’s book, Max On Life, deals with life’s questions and seeks to provide biblical answers to them. According to the author, a lot of the questions in this book came from the church he attends. With over 100 questions, ranging from financial difficulties, to marriage problems, and sexuality concerns, Max Lucado draws from his experience as a Christian clergy and knowledge of the Bible to provide guidelines for finding lasting peace and solution.
Max On Life reminds me of a similar book by Billy Graham that was of tremendous help to me over ten years ago as a young Christian. I would recommend Max On Life as a good resource for any Christian as it does not shy away from the life’s difficult questions. It is a kind of book one can always come back to for answers, while checking the Bible for more insight.
Ps 94:12 Blessed is the man you discipline, a O LORD, the man you teach b from your law;
“Why is that child always quiet?” I asked my wife. “She doesn’t answer when I say ‘hello’.”
“Her Mum told me she’s always like that in the mornings –grumpy,” my wife said.
“Oh,” I replied.
The little girl in question was about four or five years old. Her Mum was a kind woman who helped me took my daughter to the nursery three times a week.
Whenever we meet and I say good morning to Dora, the little girl, she would give me a quick glance and look away.
It is never too early to teach our kids (even a four-year-old) how to behave right, even when they are not feeling like it. They may not listen or obey all the time, but it is a good place to start.
Christian Audio is giving out “The Heavenly Man – Brother Yun” for free this month. According the website review:
“You've seen the headlines - government crackdowns on Chinese house churches; mass arrests and human rights violations...But this intensely dramatic autobiography makes it real! Learn how God took a young half-starved boy from Henan Province and enabled him to stand strong on the front lines for Jesus, braving horrific opposition and impossible odds.”
Brother Yun a.k.a Liu Zhenying was one of the most persecuted Christians in China but he was able to escape by a divine miracle from the famous Zhengzhou Maximum Security. He sought refuge in Germany in 2001 and has since continued his ministry (Back to Jerusalem Movement) from there.
