Living on purpose
We are born on purpose and for a purpose! Being clear on our reason for being is important for our wellbeing. There is a general and specific ‘calling’ (the English word for vocation) – an overall life purpose that is common to all, and a specific pathway that is unique to each one of us. Today we are thinking about our overall purpose.
In his best-selling book The Purpose Driven Life, author Rick Warren says, “If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. You were born by his purpose and for his purpose. It is only in God that we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance, our destiny.”
Knowing our God-given purpose and living it out is the birth right of every born-again child of God: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2.10).
Where is your vocational ‘dial’? Might you have been focusing on the wrong target? How can you make some changes?
