"Live Second" - Doug Bender

Doug Bender's "Live Second: 365 Ways to Make Jesus First" is an awesome daily devotional that stretches over one year of profound and inspirational readings. What I absolutely love about this devotional is that each day's reading is short and easy to read, no matter how busy your day may be. Each day's devotion offers a Bible verse that sums up the overall message for the day, and includes a short explanation or message that expands on the idea of the verse. Each day also offers a suggested prayer that is also related to the overall message of the day.

I also thought it was neat that every days poses the questions, "How will you live more Second today?" and "How will you share what you have learned?" These simple questions are a daily reminder of the underlying purpose of this book - putting God first, and learning to live "Second". Once a week, the devotional also offers some discussion questions, whether you ponder them individually or work through this book in a small group setting. Either way these discussion questions give you a chance to really evaluate the passages and apply it to your own life.

I thought this book was great - a profound message of living "Second", and learning to live a life defined by putting Christ in the #1 spot in your life. I would highly recommend this for anyone - would be great for high school ages and up, in my opinion. Great tool - loved it!
