Mr. Kingsley in his book Be Last shows us that life isn't about us.... about me becoming the greatest or achieving. It's about serving others. Doing what God wants not what I want. He continually turns back to the saying, "The way up is down." Bringing us back to his equation: humility + service = greatness. I loved the point he brought out about Wowing God!; Making Him amazed or marvel in what we do in Chapter 9. I enjoyed this read and it would be a good book to use as a group study. You my read the first chapter here.
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
