About the Book
“We should always be kind—out of self-interest if for no other reason. That kid next door who out-menaces Dennis the Menace might be your boss someday. That nerdy classmate might someday be one of your child’s teachers. That bratty cousin might be closer to you in a few years than any of your other eighty-seven cousins. Beware of road rage. That driver who upset you might be the oncologist you go to when an MRI shows you have a suspicious-looking growth in your abdomen. Sow kindness; reap kindness. If we hope to win others to Jesus, we must treat them kindly.”
This collection of articles written for the Adventist Review, along with other meditations, will touch your heart. Author R. Lynn Sauls offers his insights on a variety of subjects through these vignettes of life. He draws spiritual lessons from everyday occurrences that have enriched his life and blessed those who knew him and read his reflections. The short chapters will both inspire and encourage you as you press on through life. Choose your favorite seat, arm yourself with your favorite beverage, and prepare to have your heart warmed as you read.
“In this beautiful book filled with memories and insights, Lynn will also be your professor and friend as you travel with him through the decades. Enjoy the journey.” Andy Nash
