About the Book
The job is too big. The resources are too small. It’s just too easy. It’s just too difficult.
Naysayers are never in short supply! Tackle a job seemingly behind your abilities, and you’ll find them in every direction. But God’s people learn to disregard negativism and see beyond the obvious. They focus their vision on God Himself, His higher purposes, His never failing strength. In short, they’ve learned to see the big picture.
Why I Choose this Book
I’ve actually already read this book at least once, probably several times, over the past few years. Our family has become friends with the author and his life, and his book, are inspiring. Big Picture People is a quick and easy read (probably three hours at the most) and it’s encouraging and uplifting.
What I Thought
I really wish more people would read books like this. It talks about how many people go through life with a ‘knothole view’ instead of stepping back and seeing the big picture. Learning to see the big picture is truly a life changing experience.
God has a huge plan for each of His children’s lives. When we give our lives over to Him and really start to seek Him and follow Him then our lives become so much more than they could ever be on our own.
This book helps us see better who God is and who we are and how God can use us.
This book has a bunch of quotes, Bible verses, personal stories and practical insight and is put together in such a way that it’s really easy to read and enjoyable and inspiring all at the same time. I would happily give this book to a ten-year-old and thirty-year-old and ninety-year-old and expect them to all learn and grow from it.
I’m giving Big Picture People five stars and I would recommend it to anyone.
