Thought of the Week

The word “why” can often be ambiguous. For instance, if I asked you why did you eat that food? You could answer, I ate it because I was hungry, which is the cause, or you could say I ate to gain strength, which is the purpose.

Many struggles in life spring out of this concept. We may understand the cause for our life, go to school, get a job, make a lot of money, raise a family… but few people understand the purpose.

When we find the purpose, we find the reason to exist and life becomes an exciting adventure.

This is what Jesus is talking about when he says in John 10:10 “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”. The journey begins with this question. What is my why, my purpose? Ask yourself and let the journey begin.
