This was the phrase I tried to quote during my presentation at Back-to-School Night but didn’t quite get it right. I LOVE this thought. Purpose. Without a clear purpose in life and even with a clear purpose, society puts distractions in our path at every step that make it extremely difficult to maintain our focus. Purpose. Do I allow the world to distract me from my purpose?
Comparison. Comparison keeps my focus on myself and all that I am not. Comparison makes me intolerant of others. Comparison makes me bitter and unhappy. Comparison causes me to give up before I even try.
Purpose. Purpose keeps my focus on others. Purpose reminds me of my worth. Purpose fills me with joy. Purpose motivates me to pursue my dreams.
Am I captivated by purpose today?
For you have been called for this purpose…1 Peter 2:21
