Renewing Purpose

Why are we here? What’s the point? How do I determine the purpose of my… work, family, challenges, faith, money, limits, hobbies, friends… my life?

While these questions often start with ourselves, it is crucial to understand that they find resolution when we realize that life is not about you. We are made for something bigger than ourselves. We are made to love and serve others. And, importantly, our lives have the potential to be powerful reasons for God. As Jesus taught,

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:16, ESV).

To find our purpose in life, I am convinced we must know God in an intimate, personal way, and learn to serve our neighbors.
