The book is a revolutionaries' manual, a hands-on primer for bringing the Golden Rule to life in the twenty-first century. Meyer starts out by giving some stunning statistics. Right now...210,000 children will die this week because of poverty; 640 million children do not have adequate shelter; every day, 3,000 children are abducted into the sex-trafficking industry; every day, 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes. She goes on to say that although crisis is global, the solution is local. We can't solve the world's problems, but that isn't a reason to remain idle.
LOVE REVOLUTION focuses on personal behavior on the local scale. It's not just a call to action; it is a call to being: being the person who goes out of your way to encourage someone who's out of hope; being the one who smiles at a stranger; being the one who is willing to do something for nothing. The paradox: when we do something for nothing, what we often get is something far greater.
Rather than complain about the ugly problems of the world, this book challenges the reader to be part of solutions. The author asks, "What have you done today to make someone else's life better?" This is a book that will challenge the reader to put Christian love into action by stepping outside comfort zones.
John Maxwell writes about an interesting concept called, "The Compliment Club." Joyce Meyer proposes a "pay it forward" style of blessing others with time, talents, thoughts, words, deeds, and money.
Fans of Joyce Meyer will not be disappointed with this one.
