When I came across this book, I didn’t hesitate to order it because I really want to live a “no-regrets” life!
In One Month to Live, Kerry & Chris Shook expound on four principles to live this no-regrets life: living passionately, loving completely, learning humbly, and leaving boldly. It is further broken down into daily readings to last 30 days which are rather short (so it is manageable even amongst a busy day).
From several biblical stories and passages to relevant personal experiences coupled with the thought-provoking questions throughout each reading, you’ll learn how to apply these principles.
I found myself reading through some sentences and then submersing myself in deep thought. What if you only had one month to live? What would you do with each moment? Would you live any differently than you do now?
Even in the midst of reading this book, I have renewed my way of thinking about life and what matters most to me, and asked myself what my passion really is. I don’t want to squelch or misuse any gift that God has given me. Rather, I long to live out the person He created to me and fulfill that purpose, so that when my life ends on this earth, I will have lived passionately with no regrets! And the good news is, I can start now. It isn’t too late!
I liked how the ending thoughts were on Jesus as our example of living a no-regrets life. He knew what it meant to live passionately, love completely, learn humbly, and leave an outstanding legacy.
One Month to Live should be on everyone’s bookshelf! It will benefit teens while they’re in the process of choosing a career and building relations, for married couples, for Bible studies and for anyone who wants to live a life with no regrets.
If you have a copy already or can get a hold of one, I’d love to be your reading partner. :)
