Life on Purpose
" Do you think your existence is an accident? Are you here by coincidence? Do you just happen to exist, and now you’ve decided to cobble together something that vaguely resembles purpose or meaning?... Please take a moment and dwell on the radical claim that is being made: Every single person you meet has a mission in life. That includes that man with the sign at the freeway offramp. That includes the person you can’t stand. That includes you... You and I exist as living expressions of God’s Love. And Love does not exist for itself. Love moves outward. Love brims with abundance uncontainable, spilling over the edges and boundaries of our comfort and convenience, drawing us into lives of interdependence and mutual care. Say what you will about Love, but it is not without purpose. So how do you think you, who are made from Love and made for Love could possibly be here by accident, responsible for coming up with your own reason and meaning?"
