Today's chapter is entitled What drives your life? This is a great question to ask because if you don't know what is driving your life, how will you know if you are on the right track to your goals in life?
Some of the common things that drive people's life today are:
-Resentment and anger
-Need for approval
The benefits of purpose-driven living are:
-Knowing your purpose gives meaning to your life
-Knowing your purpose simplifies your life
-Knowing your purpose focuses your life
-Knowing your purpose prepares you for eternity
-Knowing your purpose motivates your life
AND-- Fulfilling your purpose will create an eternal legacy!
"You weren't put on earth to be remembered. You were put here to prepare for eternity."
"You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you ."--Isaiah 26:3
Nothing matters more than knowing God's purposes for your life, and nothing can compensate for not knowing them.
