Serving its purpose

Everything has a purpose!
Usually things are designed to serve an effective purpose - no matter how big or small it may seem, everything should serve it's purpose.

"The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others." -
Albert Schweitzer 

Exodus 9:16 - "But I have spared you for a purpose—to show you my power and to spread my fame throughout the earth."

Take a look at a few of the following examples and then add your own.

A lid on the toothpaste keeps the paste soft.
A spray paint tin contains enough paint to do a job.
A cover protects a cellphone.
A post-it note sticks to a book or piece of paper (usually).
A computer cable allows power to flow to your laptop/tablet.
A indicator on the car helps us tell others where we are turning.
A coffee mug holds a good cup of hot brew.
A belt keeps our jeans from slipping off.

So, what is YOUR purpose? What did God design you for? Unless we discover what our purpose is, I believe that we will be frustrated with life. We will feel as if something is missing and this will lead to discontentment.

Psalm 57:2 - I cry out to God Most High, to God who will fulfil his purpose for me.

Living in Grace
