But you and I have been given an opportunity to make a big difference. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope? Infiltrated all corners with God's love and life? We are created by a great God to do great works. He invites us to outlive our lives, not just in heaven, but here on earth. Let's live our lives in such a way that the world will be glad we did

Here is a little secret, but promise not to tell anyone, do you promise? Okay, here it is... this is the very first Max Lucado book I've ever read. Yep, it's true, many of them are in my home library but I've never read any of them.
So, being a *NEW* fan of Lucado I can honestly say WOW!
I've always thought about living a legacy, one like my grandma left for everyone to remember. One that makes you want a deeper faith. One that makes you want to know the God that she knew in the depth that she did. One that is worth remembering.
Lucado has included some real ways that real people can live a mark for God on this world for future generations to remember. Making a difference in the lives of those you and know and those you don't.
I enjoyed Lucado's word pictures. His writing reminds me of the parables that Jesus used to teach the crowds, so visual.
I'm a new Lucado fan, luckily for me I own many of his books already!
