Driven By a Purpose

Every human being is driven by some purpose. Some people are driven by other people, by careers, or other dreams-always driven, though, for the purpose of accomplishing a certain goal. We may not always agree that the effort expended was worth the end goal. However, the fact that we are driven beings always pursuing some desired objective cannot be denied. In fact, the Bible teaches us that we were created as individuals of purpose. Proverbs 13:12 says, "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life." Proverbs 13:19 states, "Desire realized is sweet to the soul." God has placed in us a drive to reach the goals we set for ourselves. What differentiates each person is the purpose for which he strives and his degree of commitment in striving for that goal.

Good post! Today Pastor preached somewhat along the same lines... well, a little different, but he did touch on that point about all of us being driven by some purpose or another-- heavenly or earthly/material (Matt. 6:24..?) Thanks for posting! And I like the picture too...
