Publisher's Description

Do you secretly think that the harder you work, the more God is pleased with you? You can live like that—for a while. But imagine what it might mean instead to unclench your teeth, loosen your grip, and actually experience God’s pleasure in you—not just in everything you are doing for Him? The Well-Played Life is a journey of a life filled with richness, fruitfulness, and creativity of living in God’s pleasure. Renowned author Leonard Sweet explores what it means to please God in the nitty-gritty of life; how that changes from the time we are 5 to the time we are 50; and how in every age of our lives, in everything we do, we can experience God’s gift of play. The Well-Played Life offers a new spiritual direction of enjoying (and being enjoyed by) God. Discover how a Sabbath way of Christian joy is not only possible, but also how we were designed . . . and a core part of God’s plan for our lives.

    I liked the book the Well-Played Life because its message is so relevant to not only my life, but that of many Christians. Many Christians do not live a life of joy because our culture pushes us to succeed and to follow all these rules in order to get everything that is considered important accomplished. All this busyness, however, makes a huge negative impact on a persons life and causes them to forget how to live and to take time just to rest and enjoy the life that God has given. The author uses a lot of Bible verses to show readers why our cultures push for success is so wrong from Gods eyes and what we need to do in order to live the life a Christian was meant to live. The author teaches that most Christians make living by faith to be hard work so that they do not become poor, lazy disciples. Instead, the author explains that instead of making following Christ hard work, we should focus on worshipping Him both inside and out and that is the key to finding joy in life. I thought that this book had a powerful message and I have seen the effects of trying to work out faith not only in my life, but also those I care about too. This is a must read for every Christian especially those who are spiritually tired.
