W Publishing The Life You Were Born to Give: Why It's Better to Live Than to Receive

Our culture tells us to be go-getters and calls us consumers, but the economics of God's kingdom are altogether different. In His kingdom we are called to be "go-givers," who pass along the blessings that God so generously gives us.

In The Life You Were Born to Give, David McKinley takes a fresh look at this kingdom dynamic by investigating the book of Romans. In it we find God's remedy for routine, unfulfilled living. He says, "This is the core issue of Christianity. It is not alignment with a code, enlightenment through education, or rehabilitation through effort, it is empowerment to live a new life in Christ."

If it's true that "everything we have, we've been given," then even our very lives are a gift given to us by God, given so that we can live to give, not live to get. Features handy one-page synopses of key points and questions for personal or group study.

We are so much into getting and acquiring things we loose sight of what God says. He wants us to be empty vessels so He can use us to give. By allowing God to use us in His ways, we find true fulfillment. It is truly more blessed to give than receive.
