I just read an excerpt from Rick Warren’s book, Purpose Driven Life that will blow apart a lot of preconceived notions you have. It made me pause and think again.
The purpose of your life is far greater than
your own personal fulfillment, your peace of
mind, or even your happiness. It’s far greater
than your family, your career, or even your
wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to
know why you were placed on this planet, you
must begin with God. You were born by his
purpose and for his purpose.
You can download the first 7 chapters of the book here. I’ll write more on this later; I need some time to digest what I’ve read.
