Live Second by Doug Bender is a religious daily devotional that makes those who practice it put God first in their lives, and themselves second. There are 365 readings and prayers to put the readers on the right path every day of the year. Are you reading to start living second?
“Athletes and actors, models and musicians, pastors and politicians … many have stepped forward, looked in the camera, and proclaimed, “I am second.” But most in the movement are not celebrities. They are ordinary people—and they’ve come to the simple realization that when God comes first in their lives, everything makes sense.
But living second is not easy. It takes grit and humility, submission to God’s will, a willingness to listen and serve, an openness to God’s healing and call.
is a daily guide to help you. With 365 readings, prayers, actions steps, and an invitation to join other Christ-followers online, what you hold in your hands is a tool built with truth, scripture, and a sure path to put Jesus first every day.
The Christian life is not meant to be easy, just worth it. is exactly what you need as you become the new, inspired, God-honoring creation he made you to be.” – Live Second
Live Second is an inspiring and motivational devotional book that can be used each day of the year. If you want to start it on a random day and not January 1st, that is fine. If you want to open the book randomly and use that day’s devotional, that works too. The point is to just read it and do it!
Putting God first in your life isn’t always an easy change to make, especially in the “me first” society we live in. It will be a difficult path for some to take on, but so rewarding! Learning to put God before yourself and to be a better person is what living is all about. It isn’t about who has the coolest new thing or keeping up with anyone else. This book reminds us all of that.
This Live Second Movement is just what the world needs right now. This book can help anyone to be a better version of themself. I highly recommend it.
