“Love Does” By Bob Goff

Title: 

Love Does 

Author: 

Bob Goff

Summary: 

This is a short, easy to read book that tells the story of Bob Goff’s journey from a teenage boy to now. Bob shows us how God changes not only his life and his career but how Bob loves people well. Bob will bring a smile to your face and a shake to your head as he tells you crazy stories from his past. But you will leave this book seeing God’s hand in Bob’s and his family’s life. Then you will desire to see that same hand move in your life. Bob will teach you to love without hesitation. That is the way we should all love.

How did it change me: 

This book was one of the top five books in my life to change how I think. I have always wanted to do the will of God. I get scared that I will make the wrong decision and that God’s directions for his will are hidden. After reading Love Does, I am encouraged to love God and my community with no reservation. I will seize opportunities as they become available. I will love the best I can without overthinking or being scared I will do something wrong.

This book freed me from fear of failure when it comes to doing God’s daily will. It has given me courage and creativity to see that in loving God and my community the sky’s the limit. I highly recommend this book for all teenagers and adults. If you want to share these stories with you kids as a family there is also Love Does for Kids.

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37-39
