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.

Once I started reading Outlive your Life by Max Lucado I couldn't stop. It will grab your attention very quickly.
Outlive your Life will encourage you to make a difference. It gives numerous examples on how a single person can have great impact for generations.
Today we live in a world of 1.75 billion poor people and 1 billions of them are in extremely hungry. This statistics put you in the right perspective.
If we all get "unshell" and open our hearts to compassion there is no doubt we can make a difference in people's lives.
Full of stories, anecdotes and personal experiences that will probably make you cry (I did) you will receive a boost of "I want to make a difference" type of attitude.
Chapters are very short - averaging 4-8 pages per chapter - which made it an easy book to read through; and also made it possible to digest the contents bite by bite. The book is quick to challenge your view of yourself and your view of the world around you; and brings about many points to stop an meditate on. There is a great use of story telling, metaphors, and illustration to bring to life the awesome reality that God can, and wants to use us! I would certainly recommend this book - especially to leaders that find themselves "too busy to read."
As Lucado writes, "We are given a choice...an opportunity to make a big difference during a difficult time. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope? Infiltrated all corners with God's love and life? What if we followed the example of the Jerusalem church?
