What Drives Your Life?
The five most common driving forces in people’s lives:
• Guilt – running from regrets and hiding shame
• Resentment and anger – holding on to hurts
• Fear – a self-imposed prison
• Materialism – the desire to acquire
• The need for approval – trying to please everyone leads to failure
Without God, life has no purpose . . . The greatest tragedy is not death, but life without purpose.
Day Three – Thinking about My Purpose
Point to Ponder: Living on purpose is the path to peace.
Verse to Remember: “You, LORD, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you.” – Isaiah 26:3 (TEV)
Question to Consider: What would my family and friends say is the driving force of my life? What do I want it to be?
Drinking and getting drunk is what family and friends would say is my driving force, and they would have been right for most of my years up to this point. For what it’s worth, I have never been in denial about this.
I would like my driving force to be serving God’s purpose, whatever it may be.
