When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box by John Ortberg

In the game of life, even the brightest victories are temporary. You don’t get to keep a thing–unless you’re playing for the right prize. Bestselling author and storyteller John Ortberg helps us focus our hearts and lives on trophies that are truly worth winning because they last forever. What can we take with us to the kingdom of God? Only the love we have for Christ, the love we have for each other, and our own souls. It’s not bad to be good at the game of life on Earth, but we can’t let it get in the way of what really matters.

When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box helps us to consider our priorities and arrange our life with eternal objectives in mind. Discover how to:

  • Live passionately and boldly
  • Be active players in the game that pleases God
  • Find your true mission and offer your best
  • Fill each square on the board with what matters most
  • Seek the richness of being instead of the richness of having

John Ortberg tells us we can take pretty much only what we brought to the game. Everything else goes back in the box. The only real “winnings” you can claim and keep are your own soul and the love you have for Christ.
