COMMITMENTS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE. We want our lives to be successful and to count for something. But commitment is difficult to maintain in a society that endorses upgrading to the newer and better model-from cars and electronics to friendships and even spouses. Yet only when we stand by our commitments can we make a real difference in our world. The Power of Commitment offers sound biblical counsel for making lasting commitments in your spiritual life, personal disciplines, and relationships. You'll discover how to make realistic commitments and how to distinguish short-term commitments from lifelong ones. And you'll learn how to defeat the enemies of commitment and say no to unnecessary commitments-without feeling guilty. If you want your life to make a difference, The Power of Commitment will strengthen your ability to commit to what is truly important, giving you the freedom and power to make an extraordinary impact on the world.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
