Everything and everyone has a purpose. I recently saw the movie Hugo on Netflix and highly recommend it. It is the story of a young orphan who takes care of and repairs machines. He explains that his purpose is to fix machines. Because when a machine is broken, and cannot do what it was made to do, it is a very sad situation because the machine no longer fulfills its purpose. Do you know what your purpose is? And are you living your purpose? If not, you may be like those machines that are broken. You are not fulfilling your purpose. And that is a very sad thing. If you don’t know what your purpose is, there are many resources that will help you find out. One excellent book is The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. Or you can take this time at the beginning of the year and start writing down a few ideas of what your purpose might be. It’s worth the effort to explore this very profound question. Try writing down 10 things you want, 10 things you need, and 10 things you love. What do those lists look like? Does it give you any clarity of purpose?
