REVIEW: Cure for the Common Life by Max Lucado
CURE FOR THE COMMON LIFE by Max Lucado is perfect for inspiring faith and understanding your path. You don’t have to be unhappy to enjoy this book, or even feel lost to benefit from its wise guidance. You may even find that you’re right where you are supposed to be. I think it’s best at proving that you’re not alone – there’s nothing wrong with you that can’t be fixed. From housewife to professional — there are nuggets in here to discover.
Max often makes me laugh. It’s random, but he hits home with a little chuckle about how silly we are at times. And then there are those morsels that seem like small ideas that can blossom, such as: “the cure for the common life involves loving the overlooked”. It’s those little moments of kindness you offer when you can make a huge difference in someone’s life…as well as yours.
Max Lucado is my favorite inspirational and devotional writer. He makes me think about the world with a different color lens. I’m constantly having these lightbulb moments when a quandary’s solution becomes crystal clear. Max has a way of bringing the word of God into life’s common moments that makes the Bible come alive. He makes me a better person and hopefully, a better Christian.
Admittedly, I stalled in this book at the 70% mark when I was instructed to write down my thoughts. I had planned on following this through, but I believe my calling revealed itself before I finished. Only time will tell, but for now, I’m satisfied with the results. I’m shelving it to bring back out when my journey is no longer clear.
I highly recommend the CURE FOR THE COMMON LIFE to clarify your path. It may shine a light so bright that it cannot be ignored.
