Every morning when I read my devotions, I like to read a devotional book after I read my Bible. I have just recently finished reading a book by renowned Christian author Max Lucado.
In Traveling light, Mr. Lucado takes the reader through Psalms 23 verse by verse explaining how Christ wants us to drop off our baggage at his feet. He talks about the burdens of discontent, worry, guilt, death, and many more. He explains the verses using other references from scripture and some wonderful short stories. The book is only about eighteen chapters of five or six pages each, yet the message of the Psalm shines brightly in each. Learning to drop off the baggage of life has been a lesson that I am constantly learning and this book helped me immensely. I am reminded of Matt. 11:28, "Come to me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." If you've been struggling with some burden or you just want a good book to help your faith I highly recommend this book! I'm going to rate Traveling Light by Max Lucado Five out of Five empty suitcases.
