Living a Life of Purpose

It’s irritating to flit from one thing to the next without purpose. It’s exciting, sure, but it’s shallow. It’s what church hoppers do. It’s what men do who are afraid to commit. It’s what all people do when they want to keep life “fresh” without pursuing a life of real meaning. How do we live a life of purpose? We do what God has chosen for us. He doesn’t map out every second and stand over us with a whip (like I used to believe), but he also doesn’t watch passively for entertainment.
