Amen. God gave a purpose, to glorify Him on whatever we do. God bless and thanks for sharing

I'm not sure about number 2 being at the core of every man. I think that is taught. Either by parents or the example of others, or more frequently by a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Father God, we come to the throne of grace today to thank You for giving us a purpose! Lead us Father to reach out to others and share Your love today. Help us to be Your eyes and ears and act on what we see. Let us look beyond ourselves to empower those around us. Let all we do be for Your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

It's easy to become unfocused in life. I seldom venture off from the path, but these three things always keep me coming back on track. We are far from perfect, but that is where the learning begins.

Amen, my friends. Those 3 things are God's pre-installed desires for purpose. If we apply our talent to those in-born desires - purpose becomes complete.

It is so true that impurity, anger and isolation keep us from our purpose. I I lived that way for so long and was so lost in my sin and couldn't find a way out. Thank God for Jesus Christ who came and showed me a better way and I truly can say today that I am living out my purpose.

I love this....I have a talent to teach and I praise God that I can do that late into my life.

After being lost in my sin for far too long, this is the question Im trying to answer. What is my purpose, what is Jesus calling me to do?

DAY 228: Finding Your Purpose

 I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.  ~ Jesus Christ, praying to His Father(John 17:4)

A man without a purpose is like a leaf floating aimlessly with the current. Eventually coming to rest after a rough ride and slowly sinking.

The absence of purpose sets you adrfit. The symptoms of impurity, anger, isolation, fear, and countless troubles are sure signs that your purpose is missing or in danger of slipping away. 

Every man has a core God-designed desire which ignites meaning for his life, they are centered around these things:

  • He is born with a deep desire to nurture and protect his family and community.
  • He has a natural tendency to empower the less fortunate.
  • He comes to life when he locks into a cause greater than himself.

Get down to the "why you do" life, instead of focusing on "what you do." It will unlock your God designed purpose.
