“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
– Mark Twain
This has become one of my favorite quotes over the course of my life. The two greatest things we can ever do are:
1) Be Born
2) Find Out Why
You may not have had any control over where you were born, who your parents are, what your name is, or what your family of origin looked like. But that’s only one part of the story! The greatest thing that we can ever understand is the purpose that God has sent us to this earth. Knowing that we have a purpose is not the same as knowing what that purpose is. We may know that we have a fingerprint, and that we have a deposit of God’s glory that he’s given us to take to the world. But we may not have any idea what that is!
You have a purpose and a plan for your life. God has sent you to this earth for a purpose and a reason. All of us have a part to play, and I believe that it is a great part! It’s the exact place where God wants us to fit!
How do we discover our why? Simply, if I can see a need. I might begin to understand my purpose. If i see a need, God has not only given me the power to see the need, but to lead the need.
The needs that I see just may be filled by my ability to utilize the fingerprint that God has given me!
What needs are you aware of today? And how can you lead them with your fingerprint? If we can answer these questions, we are on the road to finding out the reason why we were born!
