Following Jesus made simple

10 second ruleClare De Graaf challenges us to live by “The 10 Second Rule” defined as “doing the next thing you’re reasonably certain Jesus wants you to do—and do it within the next ten seconds.”  Simple, yes. Easy, no.  What if we started paying attention to the needs around us?  What if God told us to meet those needs?  Would we immediately do it or would we tuck it away to think about it later?

De Graaf cites many examples in his book where spontaneity to do good was always met with a smile from heaven.  The 10 Second Rule is proof that one person can make a difference.  This book has the potential to change someone’s life and it could be yours.

There’s no time like the present to start listening to the inner prompting of God to help someone you come in contact with today.  Take your good intentions a step further and bless someone today, right now, within 10 seconds.  You won’t need to ask what would Jesus do because you’ll be doing what Jesus did—offering help to someone who needs a blessing from God.

“The 10 Second Rule” is easy to read and can be finished in a couple of hours.  It also includes a study guide which is more for discussion in a small group than individual study.
