Are You Making a Living or Making a Life?

David "Racer" Botkin reached the top ranks of rodeo announcing, but Racer fell hard when life exposed his weakness.

Racer said, "I had my life in the wrong order. I put Christ into my life but failed to put my life into Christ."

We all know that if Christ is not first, everything is out of order. When Jesus is just a good luck charm, we expect everything to be perfect, except us.

Many men are heroes at work and zero help at home. Our guest on this episode of 5-Fold Unplugged on Charisma Podcast Network was celebrated on the road and only tolerated at home. He lived for himself and wanted everyone else to follow his lead.

Racer said, "I made a living but never made a life."

We know that genuine life comes from Christ. "In Him was life, and the life was the light of men" (John 1:4, NKJV).

Racer Botkin suffered an emotional crash several times in his life. Join us for this powerful testimony and hear how God rescued this ex-rodeo superstar and planted him back on top of the real estate industry.
