An Inherent Purpose - Today with Allen Jackson - September 8

An Inherent Purpose

Ecclesiastes 12:13

Here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

Are you looking for a life purpose? Here’s advice from King Solomon, known for his great wisdom: Respect God. Live with reverence for God. Do what’s right in the eyes of God. In all the assignments of your life—employer, employee, father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, church member, team member, committee member, friend, I could go on—do what’s right. Fulfill your responsibilities in a way that shows respect for Almighty God. The principle isn’t hard, but it will take everything you have. You don’t have to wander the world looking for His purpose for you. He has already given you one.

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, my desire today is to show respect and reverence for You in all that I do. In all the assignments You have given me, show me how to fulfill them in a way that reflects Your love for people. May others be drawn to You through my actions and attitudes, that Your Kingdom would be extended. In the name of Jesus, amen.
