Choose to Cheat!

**This post is a guest post by Billy Johnson, who writes at CA occasionally on the area of family and discipleship in the culture we live in.**

To my friends at the CA blog:  I would like to make a book recommendation!  One of the greatest cultural pitfalls that we face today is a “WorkAholicism”!  We overwork our underpaid jobs and under love our overstressed families!  This pitfall is not  exclusive to men, but is definitely more common among them.  For that reason, every dude needs to read Choosing to Cheat by Andy Stanley.

Andy teaches that we all cheat, the question is who we cheat!  When we say yes to something, we say no to something else!  We know this in the realm of health.  When we say yes to the cheeseburger and fries, we say no to the healthy life we desire.  But this truth applies to our families and work as well.  When we say yes to things at work, we say no to aspects of our families.

If you read this book, you will learn to cheat strategically and intentionally.  You will learn to not only make your family a priority, but make sure they feel like it.  You need to read this short, yet powerful book!

So, what do you think?  Are you a good cheater?
