This book focuses on commitment. Usually one does not hear the word commitment unless it has to do with marriage, so Mr. Moore has explained what commitment is and how it involves everything in life. Mr. Moore has described how there are two types of commitment—we commit to something willingly because we believe in what we commit to or we commit for any number of other reasons despite the fact we may not want to.
When I first began reading this book, I became somewhat confused. It seemed to me Mr. Moore claimed we should not bother going to the Lord for direction in making decisions. He expounded on this idea for many pages. All this time the Scripture that says we should cast all our care upon him because he cares for us seemed to have escaped Mr. Moore’s attention. Then he begins to state how he is not telling us we should not go to the Lord. It is confusing. The thing I didn’t like about it is how he degraded those who would dare put a “fleece” out before the Lord looking for an answer to a need. Anytime any preacher, author or anyone else puts down a fellowman for any of his beliefs, I tend to want to walk away and not listen to this person. I laid the book aside for a few days then began reading again, attempting to lay aside all emotional reactions until I finished the book. The best thing I got out of this book is the view of commitment being such a constant companion. In everything we do we must commit to doing it in order to get it done. When we make a decision, we must commit to the choice we make. Living life would be haphazard without it.
