It's Not about Me : We live in a culture of selfishness. We are surrounded by messages that say to be happy, to have ultimate purpose in life, we need to make ourselves the center of the universe. Even when we pray, many of us ask God only for what we want. Such a philosophy is fatal. In his new book, Max Lucado proclaims that to live a fulfilling life we must realize that "it's not about me." We were created to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. We have but one question to ask before each decision, "Will this glorify God?" For example, an athlete asks, "How can I play to the glory of God?" A mother asks, "How can I raise my children so that others will see God?" A doctor asks, "How can I treat my patients so that God will be recognized." In a way that only Max Lucado can, we find out in It's Not About Me, how to calibrate our lives with God and His glory alone at the center of our world. It is through this "Copernican shift" that we can truly live an unburdened life with the promise of meeting His glory.
