The Pursuit of Wealth and Purpose
We all want to be financially free and to get the benefits and influence wealth brings us. But if we are not careful we will loose sight of what is really important. What will it benefit you and me to be billionaires but realize we did not fulfill our purpose? What will it benefit you and me to have the toys and luxuries and loose our souls and family? The greatest enemy of success is being busy with good things that are not in line with your life’s purpose. It’s good to be financially free but if the finances are not fulfilling your life’s purpose then you are a rich failure.
In my book titled; “There are no secrets to success” the foundation principle states that, God’s purpose for our lives is the foundation we must build our dreams on.”
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”-Pro 19:21 (NIV)
It does not matter how rich you want or desire to be. But in the end God’s purpose will be fulfilled in your life no matter what. To save ourselves of the financial losses we should first discover God’s purpose for our lives then pursue wealth fulfilling lives. When you are fulfilling your life purpose you are happy because you love what you are doing. Purpose inspires others. Not only will you be wealthy, you will be serving your gift to the world and you will be great. “The greatest among you will be your servant”-Mat 23:11 (NIV).
Before you waste your life pursuing wealth in the wrong areas, discover God’s purpose for your life. When you pursue God’s purpose for your life you don’t need to pursue wealth, wealth will pursue you. God always makes sure you have all the resources and tools you need to fulfill your purpose.
“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.”-Joel 2: 28 (NIV)
Don’t wait till you are rich to start pursuing and fulfilling your life’s purpose. When The Holy Spirit comes upon you when you are old you dream dreams. By then it will be late to for you because you will not be as energetic as you were when you were still young. Don’t wait till your bones are tired that your body can’t support your mind. No matter how young you are now, start to pursue and fulfill your life’s purpose now. With the energy, imagination and vision you have now pursue your purpose. Go ahead and pursue the fulfillment of your purpose. You are never too young to do God’s work and you are never too old to be used by God.
God didn’t create you to make money then die. Fulfill your life’s assignment and die empty. Don’t die with greatness in you. Live full and die empty. Be fruitful, grow, shine, excel, multiply and fulfill God’s purpose for your life. I love you my friend. Stay blessed.
