Growing With Purpose

Growing With Purpose

About the book
Growing with Purpose elevates God’s grace to its proper place, above sin, where love always triumphs over lists of rules, where no one is forgotten, and where everyone gets more than a second chance. This one-year devotional is an unusual and compelling combination of conversational pictures, humorous prose, and practical suggestions firmly planted in biblical theology.

My Thoughts
Here’s another devotional that I got the opportunity to review. It is one-year devotional (however, there are no dates at the top of the devotions!) that will help you to go deeper in understanding God’s plan for your life. The author, Jon Walker, has worked closely with Rick Warren (remember the Purpose Driven Life and Purpose Driven Church?) in the past. This devotional will help Purpose Drive Life readers and others to discover God’s grace and grow in His love.

Each devotion has only one page and starts with a scripture at the beginning. Then the author writes about something that will make you think. Part of devotions I think is that they make you think and ponder about what you have read and see how you can apply it in your life.

This little book will bring your stories from the author or his family, prayers to read, stories from past events, life stories and so on. At the end, I sense that the reader would have grown to become more like Jesus and realize that God has indeed a plan for his/her life. Too often, we have a tendency to think that we are not worth it but it isn’t the case.

This devotional would make a wonderful stocking gift for the coming New Year. It would be a good book to go through during each day of 2010. And be prepare to grow with purpose in your life as you discover God’s plan for you!

This review was possible because I receive a copy of Growing with Purpose from Zondervan.
