We might make money, but that is not our purpose. Our purpose is to solve a problem that is someone else’s problem. Have you ever heard the phrase, “It’s a blessing to be a blessing?” It is better to give than to receive. (Acts 20:35) The two are related, but it’s even better when we give and we will not benefit in any way. Meaning because it was in secret, there is not ulterior motive such as them liking us more or giving us favor. Blessing others blesses US.
Standing Firm In Our Purpose
When we renew our mind, we can decide that we will not be swayed by fear. We have to be like Jesus on the boat who spoke to the hurricane (Matthew 8:27) or like my friend Suzy who saw a bad storm coming, so she spoke to the storm and it went south.
We don’t stand firm because we FEEL like it. I don’t always FEEL married, but I have a contract that says I am. Our faith is not based on our song and dance, we don’t achieve Jesus, we receive Jesus. Stand firm in your purpose and bless others with your talent.
Your purpose is to give the gift of the talent God has given to you. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. (Luke 6:38)
Whether your talent is in business to fund Kingdom work, or to serve in your workplace, or to help others in your neighborhood, you have a gift. Share it with abundance. Embrace your purpose. Renew your mind in his word and let God pour himself through you to bless others through your purpose today. Amen!
