Blogging for Books- The Richest Man who Ever Lived

Review: The Richest Man who ever lived by Steven K. Scott.

         I have decided to try something new lately. Read More! It is not that I don't like to read but instead many times I don't have the time to read. So I came up with this plan. I decided that I would enroll in one of the blogging for books programs and force myself to read. I also am able to get free books that I can put in my iPad so when I have a spare moment it becomes easier to read. This program is amazing as it allows you to choose your book and I even tell them what kind of books I am interested in.

       The first book that I choose to read for my new ambition of reading more was a book entitled The Richest Man Who Ever Lived By Steven K. Scott. It was one of the best books I have read in a long time. As a minister I am constantly looking for knowledge, and inspiration. This book had both in an easy to read format. The book takes the wisdom left to us by King Solomon and showed how one man used this wisdom to become successful in life. Scott starts off the book and tells his incredible story. He tells how for his first 9 jobs he was a complete failure. He reveals how he was continuously being fired at his jobs. He then read the book of Proverbs and learned the wisdom that King Solomon relates in the Bible. His life instantly changed as he changed his life. Instead of being a failure he became a success at his job. During this book Scott reveals the things that he learned from King Solomon that changed his life. He talks about work ethic, diligence, vision, hope, honesty, anger, loyalty, greed, and so much more.

          As a minister I frequently am trying to convey in the classes that I teach, sermons that I preach and even my interactions with the youth that I work with; that the Bible tells us how to be successful in all aspects of life. This story was a great encouragement to me, and even gave me inspiration to continue teaching that that the Bible can help us not just spiritually but financially, with relationships, and anything else that we need help with.

        I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to live successfully. I was wary when I first started reading this book but I was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of inspiration, wisdom, and content that this book contains.
