Empty Promises: The Truth About You, Your Desires, and the Lies You're Believing by Pete Wilson, Rick Warren (Foreword)

We all long for more of something in our lives. In our endless pursuit to feel worth and acceptance we find ourselves sacrificing everything for the promise to be a little more beautiful, a little richer, a little more powerful and successful, a little more loved. How do we break free from these empty pursuits and start chasing the only Promise that will ever satisfy? How do we uncover the hidden idols that are driving us and turn our devotion toward the one true God? Join Pastor and best-selling author Pete Wilson in discovering the joy and freedom that comes with seeking after God with your whole life. Learn how to replace, and not just relinquish, life's empty promises by turning your focus and worship toward Him. It is the only thing that will set you absolutely free from the endless pursuit of everything else.
Little do we realize what we are putting before God are actually idols. They may not be a carved statue, but it could be tv, sports or money. If we're not making time for God, how can God make time for us? The author puts before us, in plain black and white and it's easy for all to understand what we as humans are doing to our christian walk. This book made me feel, more than ever, that money is the root of all evil, and if it keeps me from getting into Heaven, then I don't want it. If you're ever confused about your christian walk and where you stand then this would be a good book to read and sort through your life and help you with your relationship with God.
