Hello, my faithful readers! Today, I will be asking you five important questions that I was able to ponder myself as I was reading the book, “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren. It will take time to answer them truly and honestly according to your state of being.
It is not to have a quick answer and then move on like nothing happened. To get real results, it is critical to deeply meditate, frankly evaluate, and take positive actions. You will have a greater effect on your personal life. I know I did! So, with that said, let’s get to the heart of it!
What will be the center of your life? “You can have a career, family, money, sports or hobby, or many other activities. However, none is strong enough to hold you together when life begins to break you apart. You need an unshakeable center. Let God be your center. When God’s at the center of your life, you worship. When he is not, you worry.” Rick Warren
What will be the character of your life? Character is who you are than what you do. Make a list of the character qualities you want to work on and develop in your life.
What will be the contribution to your life? This is about making a difference in the place you are serving. When you serve, you are meeting the needs of people and creating an overflow of gratefulness to God.
What will be the communication of your life? Your life’s purpose statement is to share with others. Life lessons that will provide hope for others to be able to apply in their own lives.
What will be the community of your life? We have been wired to be relational and it is important to connect with others. Finding the community in which to be part of and get involved will bring joy.
“For David, … served the purpose of God in his own generation.” Acts 13:26
Peace, Love, and Joy!
