Discovering Purpose

discover

A man once saw a stone on the bank of a river, and thought he would use that stone to break the shell of a coconut. In his amazement the stone said, “Don’t use me to strike against such a hard and painful surface”. The man was in shock, as far as he knew the stone had no other important use. The stone then said, “Only because you are unaware of my true purpose you then use me to fulfill your own selfish desires”.
Likewise, we see each other as having use and not purpose.
People were never made to have use, but rather purpose. Therefore, purpose transcends cost or any earthly value assigned to it, purpose is a gift from the Lord.
J Archer.
