The most common question known to man is, “what is my purpose in life?”
I don’t think it’ll go out of fashion. People have made money helping others answer it.
People have gone the wrong way due to their inability to answer the question.
People have done unnecessary hustle due to the inaccurate answers they provided to that question.
Some don’t even bother looking for the answer.
And others have been on track because they’ve successfully answered the question.
Well, let’s back track a bit and take a quick overview of the old testament. You’ll realize that regardless of how brutal, annoying or meek God’s prophets and judges were, all their assignments had one thing in common…
They all saved the lives of a set of people.
The end result of their work was just that. But the methods were different.
Some had to prophesy doom, some had to kill giants, some had to become the wives of kings, and some had to do miracles, like parting the red sea.
Then in the new testament, we see the emergence of the ultimate lifesaver solution with no expiry date – Jesus Christ. And his own method was through death.
God is all about preservation of the life He created. And whatever He has sent you to do is connected to that. It’s the underlying message of your work when you really drill down.
But the methods are still diverse. Some have to preach; some have to hold money so their owners don’t finish it; some have to write; some have to use music to convey the message. Some have to design clothes, and some have to construct buildings.
If confusion is still lurking in your heart, ask for light. And ask for the revelation of your own method because ultimately, you’re here to save lives too.
So connect whatever you do to that, and you’ll find new meaning in your work.
I hope I just saved someone’s life?
