The Best Question Ever

This morning I finished the message for this coming Sunday and I'm excited about it! We're beginning a new series of messages this week based on a great book by Andy Stanley. The book is called, The Best Question Ever - A Revolutionary Approach to Decision Making. It is an easy read, (it's only 187 pages) and it is one of the most practical books I have ever read. You might be wondering, "what is the best question ever?" I'm not going to tell you now. That will be discussed during Sunday's message, but I will tell you this, if you practice this approach to making decisions it will have a massive effect on your life. There is a linc to amazon.com at the bottom of this post, so you can order your own copy to read this month to go along with the messages. By the way, thanks to my Dad, or Grandbob as my girls call him (who is a regular reader of this blog) for telling me about this book.

While you'll have to wait until Sunday to find out what the best question ever is, here is a list of questions that are definitely not the best question ever:

Do you want fries with that?

Does this look infected to you?

Would you like free tickets to the N-Sync reunion concert? (confession: I think I have an N-Sync song on my ipod.)

How much do you weigh? (asked by a man to a woman)

How much money did you make last year? (asked by anyone to a man)

Can I borrow your new Shelby Mustang GT convertible to take your daughter out?

Do you want a spanking? (has any child ever said, "Yes, I would love one"?)

Here's the linc for the book at amazon.com:


By the way I'd love to hear some questions you thought of that are not the best ever.

Does this outfit make my rear end look big?

Do you know how fast you were driving?

This mullet looks good on me right?

I think you should have left the N-Sync confession out though Cliff. Good stuff.

Can I ask you a question?

What were you thinking?

Does my hair look alright?
(I get this one wrong all the time and it doesn't matter how I answer)
