I think I have put down Men and Women: Enjoying the Difference by Larry Crabb for now because I'm not finding it to be what I'm interested in at the moment. I did really find good information in the first half of the book. Larry Crabb described selfishness in such a way that it helped me desire to be more selfless. I think we are all generally selfish but are capable of selfless motives and actions. I want my motives and actions to be more selfless. Doesn't that sound like more fun?
I started another book today, Afflictions by Edith Schaeffer. So far I'm very intrigued. It deals with how to live amidst afflictions, whether large or small. My initial reaction to a tragedy or hardship is to ask, "why?"
Here are some quotes from the first chapter:
