Life is NOT all about purpose,
There is more to LIFE than purpose.
It’s a good thing to know our purpose, it’s likewise better to achieve it, but most importantly, it’s best to have the right beliefs.
Lets scrutinize our thoughts on this scripture for a moment, “what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul.”…
The phrase “gains the whole world” can be termed as an idiomatic expression which literally means “achieving one’s purpose.” You could be a Christian walking in the line of God’s purpose for your life and yet still divulge the wrong beliefs, you could also be a Muslim who thinks all that matters is doing good and yet still reckon the wrong faith.
We are being warned (from the scripture above) not lose sight of our priorities, not to get too attracted to the dictums of the world nor distracted by the success that precedes our diligence and hard work. Do not let your efforts be in vain by thinking you’re always in the light, not knowing that your are like a bulb that shines bright today and goes dim tomorrow. Set your priorities straight and look deep into your life to cleanse yourself of all the camouflaged stains that has habituated in you all these while.
Don’t be like a goat who thinks its being fed in surplus because of the love the owners have for it, not knowing that death lies in wait for the meat it has to offer. The goat had a wrong belief, even though things were working out well for it, it still died believing in vanity. The goat was achieving purpose, it was growing fatter than its peers, it had a generous, caring, and loving master (in deception) who fed it day and night with the most sumptuous meals, but one thing was missing, “the goat believed in the wrong thing.” THANK GOD we are not goats, but mind you, because we are goats physically doesn’t mean we can’t behave like one.
Purpose without the right beliefs is like a goat who thinks its a pet
Purpose + Right Beliefs = LIFE
