Purposes

I have been so man-centered these days, so me-centered. Some of it I am sure is due to this marathon coming up in seven days–it has consumed my thought-life for much of the last four to six months. But even the marathon will serve no purpose if my thoughts about it and my goals are not God-centered. A medal won’t do much for my life in the big scheme of things…
God wants us Him-centered. He wants to be the reason for the things we are involved with. My reason for doing what I do must involve His glory revealed in my life, or it is all useless. Only God Himself can remove the underlying thought in me that my life revolves around me; I wouldn’t say this, yet sometimes I act this way. May I become so involved with Him that HIs glory revealed through me becomes my very reason for being.
