  • You Have Purpose

    On a hot day in western Texas, my niece Vania saw a woman standing by a stoplight and holding up a sign. As she drove closer, she tried to read what the sign said, assuming it was a request for food or money. Instead, she was surprised to see these three words:

    "You Have Purpose"

    God has created each of us for a specific purpose. Primarily that purpose is to bring honor to Him, and one way we do thetas by meeting the needs of others (1 Peter 4:10-11).

    A mother of young children may find purpose in wiping runny noses and telling her kids about Jesus. An employee in an unsatisfying job might find his purpose in doing his work conscientiously, remembering it is the Lord he is serving (Colossians 3:23-24). A woman who has lost her sight still finds purpose in praying for her children and grandchildren and influencing them to trust God.

    Psalm 139 says that before we were born "all the days ordained for [us] were written in [His] book" (verse 16). We are "fearfully and wonderfully mad" to bring glory to our Creator (verse 14).

    Never forget: You have purpose!
