ReThink: Purpose

How often, I wonder, do we flee the purposes God has for us by assuming they’re elsewhere? For years when I imagined the purpose of my life being in some faraway land, waiting to be arrived at by some well-prepared superhuman. Nowadays, though, I try to be a lot more present to what’s right in front of me. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat down to have a conversation with God about what I’m going to do with my life and at the end of almost every single one of those conversations, God, after being very patient, has asked me: “So how well are you loving the people right in front of you?”
