What Is Purpose?

Everything in life has a purpose. Everyone on this planet was born with and for a purpose. It is this purpose that is the only source of meaning. Without purpose, life is an experiment or a haphazard journey that results in frustration, disappointment and failure. Without purpose, life is subjective, or it is a trial and error game that is ruled by environmental influences and the circumstances of the moment. Likewise, in the absence of purpose, time has no meaning, energy has no reason and life has no precision. Therefore, it is essential that we understand and discover our purpose in life so that we can experience an effective, full and rewarding life.

Purpose is…

…the original intent for the creation of a thing,

…the original reason for the existence of a thing,

…the end for which the means exist,

…the cause for the creation of a thing,

…the desired result that initiates production,

…the need that makes a manufacturer produce a specific product,

…the destination that prompts the journey,

…the expectation of the source,

…the objective for the subject,

…the aspiration for the inspiration, and

…the object one wills or resolves to have.

Every product is a child of purpose. In other words, before any product is made, there is a purpose established in the mind of the manufacturer that gives conception to the idea that becomes the substance for the design and production of the product. Thus, purpose precedes production.

All things begin and end with purpose.  Your Purpose Is an Integral Part of you.  Your existence is evidence that this generation needs something that your life contains.

As you discover who you are, you will learn that your purpose, your identity, your uniqueness and your potential are interdependent. This is true because known purpose reveals the particular components God built into you to enable you to achieve all that He prepared for you.

The purposes of a man’s heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out.
