What’s your purpose?

“It’s not about you.
The purpose of your life is far greater than the your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even you happiness.”
~ Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life

What is your purpose in life?  It’s a question that has come up a lot for me lately.  What is my purpose?  What is the purpose or mission of my marriage?  What is the purpose of the job I’m currently in?  What about the purpose of the brands that I work for…Buick and GMC?

To help me think through some of these questions, I asked a friend if I could borrow a book…The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren.  This will be a 40 day journey to help me discover “my purpose.”

As a side note…not really sure what it is with me and 40 day programs or 90 day programs.  If you’ve been following me on Twitter or Facebook, I’ve been updating everyone on my progress through one of the best workouts I’ve ever done…P90X.  I just finished a book called The Love Dare.  This was also a 40 day journey on marriage.

Everyone has a purpose in life.  I know it has nothing to do with me but others.  How can the gifts and talents God gave me be used to help others?  It’s a question we all should be asking of ourselves.  Once I discover what that “purpose” is, I need to share it with others…

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
      And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8)

What is your purpose?  If I figure it out, I’ll let you know mine in 40 days…

One thought on “What’s your purpose?

  1. In terms of deception, modern heresies and urban myths we still haven’t seen the last of purveyors of false gospels. As long as people are ready to eliminate sin, righteousness and judgement from their messages or salvation story we will always have a long list of substitutes. The result of these easy substitiutes leads to frustruation, embarrassment and shipwreck. (See article “The emperor steps out in his clothes..again” http://wp.me/pEVJ0-jL )
