Good Morning Skyline family! Hope you all had a wonderful week. We have been trying to stay dry here on the mountain without much luck. I am so ready for it to be summer already!
I wanted to let you in on a great book I have been reading lately, called Everybody Always by Bob Goff. This man’s story is actually pretty awesome! He is the founder of Love Does, a nonprofit organization that seeks to help women & children in compromising situations in areas such as Uganda, Somalia, & Iraq through schools & safe houses. He gave up his law firm to write & speak full time & has written many inspiring books over the years that have encouraged millions to live life without limits.
Everybody Always is a New York Times Bestseller that as the cover says talks about “becoming love in a world full of setbacks & difficult people.” Easier said than done right? He discusses what can happen in our life when we give away love like we are made of it! Through a series of experiences in his own life, he tells some stories both funny & inspiring.
My favorite line & what just so happens to be how the title of the book came about is this: “The rules for love are simple: Everybody. Always.” Powerful right? Whenever he wondered who he should love & how long he should love them for God continuously reminded him, “Everybody. Always.” I don’t know about you, but that is a lesson we all could learn from. Loving people like Jesus does is never going to be easy, but God calls us as Christians to do just that.
I hope you consider checking it out for your next read & pray that it will be as much of a blessing to you as it has been to me!
