What is your purpose for living? Have you ever taken time to pause in the rat race of life and figure out why youâ€™re in it?
I recommend developing a life purpose statement. A man once told me his purpose statement was â€œGet all you can; can all you get; and sit on the can!â€ I hope that when you develop your purpose statement itâ€™ll be more than that.
Donâ€™t be shortsighted, focusing on this life alone. Keep eternity in mind. God created all of us for a purpose. Whatâ€™s yours?
Hereâ€™s a hint. To know God has put you on this earth for a purpose becomes clear when you get to know the person of Jesus Christ. With Him, itâ€™s amazing how all things become clear. Otherwise, you end up like the masses, too busy to take time to know why youâ€™re here and too lost to know where youâ€™re going.
Are you racing through life going nowhere fast?
Stop for a second. Look to God in Christ and discover the purpose of your life.
