Point: Don’t waste your final years by living for meaningless pursuits which quickly fade. Live to love Christ.

Path: Piper encourages believers to persevere to the end through evading two deadly traps. One trap is believing that perseverance in unnecessary. The other trap is that perseverance puts or keeps God on our side. Both are false views.

Sources: By using examples from the ages and Scripture passages, Piper shows the danger and foolishness of living the “American Dream.”

Agreement: Why do we expect and feel as though we deserve retirement? Have any of the great individuals of history ever retired?

Personal App: Am I merely seeking to save my life in my everyday pursuits and goals?

Stars: 4 out of 5
It would be worth another read and I would recommend it.

Note: I didn’t read this because I was worried about my early retirement at age 28.
