The Purpose Driven Life (chapter 6)

Day 6

Thinking About My Purpose

Point to Ponder: This world is not my home.

Verse to Remember: “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18

Question to Consider: How should the fact that life on earth is just a temporary assignment change the way I am living right now.

Answer: Living in light of eternity is easier said than done. It’s very easy to fall into the trap of thinking  life on earth final.  Knowing this, I need to remind myself that earth is nothing more than my temporary home. I can do this by staying locked into God’s word through scripture and staying connected to Him through prayer.

Since I know life on earth is just a blur, I need to live my life in a way that reflects my beliefs. Every time I find myself discouraged I need to remind myself that the misery won’t last long. Instead of letting this world bring me down, I will choose to be full of joy knowing this is just a temporary home.
