Well, I have dug out my Rick Warren book- the purpose driven life and decided it was time to start reading it again. Many of my friends have been helped by this book, and I will be reading it to learn whatever I can. I very much liked Rick’s previous book on the church, and do believe that his five “purposes” are biblical. (see my post what did the church ever do for me? for more on my take on these)
So chapter one (I am not promising to read a chapter every day, but I will not read more than one in a given day- hope Rick will forgive me!). This is basic but essential stuff. We are put on earth not to fullfill ourselves (too often even a pre-occupation with my personal salvation can be too self-obsessed), but rather to fulfil God’s purpose for us. It really isn’t all about me.
