Purpose

Many people have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. by Helen Keller




Acts 11:21-24
And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believed and turned to the Lord.
Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch. When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord. For he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.



Many people lose sight of what God's purpose for them are.

I like the way Helen Keller puts it.

God is a worthy purpose and we need to focus on what God's will is in our lives.

We're too busy trying to have our way instead of God's way.

What is your purpose in God?
