Book Review: Live Loved By Max Lucado

Live Loved is a devotional book based on the writings of  one of America's leading Christian writers, Max Lucado. This devotion book includes a broad range of topics such as facing your fears, accepting God's grace, and truly knowing God’s omnipresent love. Each devotional is accompanied by an ending prayer to nurture a stronger prayer life as well as two or three related Bible passages. The purpose of this book is to remind us of God's unconditional love for us, which gives us hope and peace in life. Max uses personal and Biblical stories as examples of how God's love works and how we can recognize and experience this love on a daily basis.

Live Loved is a great reminder of the importance of God's love in our lives. Sometimes we feel hopeless, depressed, unforgivable, or like we're going nowhere in life. It's hard to keep your spirits up when you're let down by those closest to you, by the economy, by your job, or even by your own self. But God will never let us down. He keeps all of His promises, loves us unconditionally, and forgives all of our many sins.

I've struggled a lot throughout my life with not loving or respecting myself the way I should. As odd as it may seem, I usually don't have a problem with loving others, but when it comes to myself, I don't think I'm good enough or deserving of love. But knowing that God loves me no matter how worthless or hopeless I may sometimes feel makes me see that I do have a purpose in this life and I do deserve to respect and love myself, as well as to receive love and respect from others. I'm sure some of you struggle with similar self-esteem issues and need this reminder too. Or maybe you're the opposite and you love yourself just fine but don't show love to others the way you should. This book will remind you that just as God loves unconditionally, so we should strive to love those around us with an unconditional, selfless love. The people closest to you aren't always going to make you happy, relationships aren't always going to be smooth-sailing, and life doesn't always go your way. But unconditional love is a love that lasts even throughout those hard times, overlooks the petty annoyances of others, forgives, and remains strong during struggle. God is the prime example of this love, and we should strive to follow His example.  

Live Loved puts things into perspective and shows us that on the road of life, our faith in God's love is really all that matters. Check out the preview below. Happy Reading!
