While the author does acknowledge that there are some decisions that require time, prayer, and counsel, he says most impressions we receive from the Holy Spirit don't. It comes down to simply obeying what Jesus would want us to do.
According to the author, the more we know about the character and teachings of Jesus, the more we trust him and the more confidence we have in responding in simple, spontaneous obedience. For me, this was the most important lesson I took from the book. There are a lot of things God asks us to do for someone else that don't require praying about it first. There is no need to over think it, dwell on the what-ifs, or wait for a sign or confirmation when what we feel led to do lines up with what scripture teaches. Or, put another way, doesn't go against what scripture teaches. The Rule is about acting on faith and acting quickly when God calls before the enemy can talk us out of it - or before we talk ourselves out of it for fear of embarrassment, wondering what others might think, or questioning whether we can afford it.
The 10-Second Rule is a principle every Christian can benefit from and gives opportunity for us to grow in our faith through obedience and spread the gospel through our actions.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
This new edition has been totally revised with more dramatic and inspirational stories of people practicing the 10 second rule, expanded teachings on the revolutionary power of simple obedience, and a field-tested study guide perfect for one-on-one use with a friend or colleague, for book clubs, and for groups of all sizes.
I have given copies of The 10 Second Rule to many people and will continue to do so. I highly recommend The 10 Second Rule by Clare De Graaf.
De Graaf cites many examples in his book where spontaneity to do good was always met with a smile from heaven. The 10 Second Rule is proof that one person can make a difference. This book has the potential to change someone's life and it could be yours.
There's no time like the present to start listening to the inner prompting of God to help someone you come in contact with today. Take your good intentions a step further and bless someone today, right now, within 10 seconds. You won't need to ask what would Jesus do because you'll be doing what Jesus did--offering help to someone who needs a blessing from God.
"The 10 Second Rule" is easy to read and can be finished in a couple of hours. It also includes a study guide which is more for discussion in a small group than individual study.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Howard Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, Inc., as part of their Book Review Blogger Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
We see normal every day examples of people just like us who took a simple bold step to listen to the still small voice that God uses to help us all be better sons and daughters in His kingdom. Read it twice and keep it nearby.
