Whether teaching or parenting, many questions begin with "Why?" Students want to know why we have to learn certain things or behave certain ways. There are why questions about how the world works. As we think about our own lives, we, too, may have questions that begin with "Why?" as we search for purpose.
When we search for purpose or ask "Why?", we can begin by turning to God. God is our source of love, hope, and purpose. We can approach God through prayer. We can ask Him to fill us with His purposes for our lives, then we need to listen to and follow His will in our lives. When we are listening to God, we can trust that we don't need to ask, "What's the point?" When we understand that the purpose comes from God, through Him, and for Him, we know that the point is for His glory and the benefit of all of His children!
All things come from and through God. The point is that we should act in faith and love for Him!
Thank You for the purpose and direction You provide in my life. Help me to hear Your will and to follow it in my life. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
