Living a life of meaning and purpose
October 27, 2011
He who observes the wind will not sow,
and he who regards the clouds will not reap.
I saw an interview on television awhile back about the poverty in some portions of our nation today. They were interviewing some people who have been born in poverty and have lived their entire lives with almost nothing to their name.
It was one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen. And as they interviewed these people, none of them seemed to have any goal or purpose in life. They asked one young man, “What are your dreams? What is your purpose?” He replied, “I don’t know, just stay here.”
So many people live like that today. They get up in the morning, slosh down some coffee, go to work, come back home, go to bed, and get up and do it over again. Then one day, they die without ever really living… only existing.
But God calls you and me to much more than just a routine. He calls us to live for something so much greater than ourselves and to experience real life in Him. But to do that, it means breaking out of the ordinary and taking risks for God.
Don’t just settle for the normal. Live with purpose. When you do, you’ll discover that life truly does have meaning beyond just existing!
GOD WANTS YOU TO LIVE WITH PURPOSE FOR HIM. SO BREAK OUT OF THE ORDINARY AND DO SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY FOR GOD TODAY!
