Publisher's Description

Have you sensed God calling you to greater obedience?

You pass a car with its hood up or gas cap open, and by the time you decide to stop and help, you’re a mile away . . . so you don’t.

You see a woman crying in a grocery store aisle and you are prompted to stop and ask if you can help . . . but you keep walking.

You hope that you’ll do better next time . . . but will you?

In this powerful book, you’ll discover a memorable, simple way to be attentive to the voice of God and courageously obedient to the promptings of the Spirit. You’ll find practical ideas for discerning God’s will, and you’ll read stories of ordinary men and women—just like you—who are living by the Rule and how it has transformed their lives and the lives of those they reach out to.

The 10-Second Rule is a call to rediscover the revolutionary power of simple obedience as Jesus taught it and the early church lived it, before religious Christianity tamed it! It’s following Jesus made simple. Previously self-published, this new edition has been revised extensively with more stories, expanded teachings, and a study guide.

Finally, a rule you’ll love keeping!

Author Bio

Clare De Graaf is a follower of Jesus, an elder, a Bible teacher, and for more than twenty-five years a full-time spiritual mentor of men, from college students to other would-be servant/leaders. A successful businessman and Christian all his life, at age thirty-one he found himself at a spiritual crossroads—a crisis of faith triggered by cancer. Surrendering himself to Christ, he sold his manufacturing company in 1984, at age thirty-five, to devote the balance of his life serving wherever God called. Since then, De Graaf has been deeply involved in US and international church planting, microeconomic development in Haiti, and orphanage and hospital reconstruction in Albania. He is also the founding chairman of DOOR International, a ministry committed to translating the Bible into sign language for the deaf of the world. Clare and his wife, Susan, live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and are the parents of six children and proud grandparents of thirteen. Read Clare’s blog, interact with him, and learn more about his ministry at ClareDeGraaf.com. Also find him on Facebook at facebook.com/The10SecondRule.

Editorial Reviews

"The 10-Second Rule is a wonderful, inspirational book that reinforces how one simple gesture, one small act of kindness, can make an enormous difference. Its heartfelt message is that we all have the power to change a life if we open our eyes to the unplanned and hidden blessings that are put in our path for a very special reason."
“Rarely does a book jolt me into immediate action. The 10-Second Rule did just that. After laying the book down I kneeled…and recommitted myself to ‘doing the next thing Jesus asks me to do.’ This book will wreak all kinds of good havoc in all who read it.”
“With unblinking transparency, Clare De Graaf says…what most of us secretly know about ourselves, which often keeps us from living the life God blesses. Living by the Rule is the way forward! Ten seconds can change your life.
“Excellent…helps turn down the noise so we can…really listen to the Savior’s direction…and follow! I highly recommend this small book filled with big impact!”
“An easy-to-grasp and memorable formula for building a life that consistently puts the will and wisdom of Jesus into action. This book is a game-changer!”
“You will enjoy and be impacted by The-10 Second Rule. I hope not to miss as many Jesus moments in the future.”

    There are two things I love about this book: First, it creates a sense of expectancy that God will actually speak to us in a way that is clear enough to respond. This takes faith out of the theoretical and brings it into the intensely practical domain. Second, every time we sense Jesus asking us to do something and we don't (which is often), the book reminds us to re-employ The Ten Second Rule the very next time. We get "do-overs"--Yea! This book is a simple read but it contains profound truths. Read it and reap.

    Reading this book has made me much more aware of those around me in need. It is easy to help out when asked, but most of us don't have our eyes "open" all the time. Our small group from church is using the study guide for our weekly meetings. I feel it is really helping me to grow as a follower of Jesus by doing what I am reasonably certain that He would want me to do and doing it right away. I am in awe of people like the author that sell businesses, homes, etc. to devote their life to helping others find God. Great book and easy read yet very valuable information!

    A Transformational Reading Experience

    There are so few books that leave the reader transformed. The 10 Second Rule does just that! Clare De Graaf writes with authentic convictions, genuine concern for people and a biblical life experience that compels the reader to live in wonder what God is going to do next which determines what I need to do next. You will never be the same. I don't think I will be the same person one year from today.

    Simple Plan for Obedience

    In The 10 Second Rule, de Graff presents a simple plan for obedience. The information is practical and easy to understand concerning obedience to the Spirit's leading in your life. De Graff gives pointers for simplifying the act of obedience that proves quite difficult to practice. In this quick read, the readers learn that a quick submission to the Holy Spirit brings the abundant life that Jesus promises. Funny enough the morning before I got the book, I felt the Holy Spirit leading me to help an old lady who seemed to be using the grocery cart as a walker to load her groceries in her car and put the cart away for her. She told me I made her day. The only thing I would have done differently was explain that the Holy Spirit had prompted me to do it and that I was just obeying Him; as de Graff explains to do in the book possibly leading to a wonderful time to share the Hope that is within me. The book is on my short reread list.
