How would you answer the questions, “What defines you”? What is my life purpose? Is it work, sports, your spouse or significant other? Or perhaps it is your children.
Are you a “cause” person? What is your passion? What are your dreams and aspirations? What do you value? Is it money or your position? Or perhaps it is how you are viewed by others? How do you spend your money? your time? Is it on yourself or on others? Are you generous?
Is there a purpose to life? Is man a cosmic accident or was man deliberately created? If man was created who created him?
Does evil exist? If it does, where did evil come from?
What are your fears? What loss in your life would impact you the most?
What happens to a man or woman when they die? Do they just cease to exist or is there something else?
Many of us don’t go around each day thinking about the questions raised above. However, how you answer these questions will utterly determine the quality of your life both now and for eternity.
Spending Your Life
If every moment of every day were a dollar or a coin, how are you spending your life? How would you define a life well lived?
“I am wired by nature to love the same toys that the world loves. I start to fit in. I start to love what others love. I start to call earth “home.” Before you know it, I am calling luxuries “needs” and using my money just the way unbelievers do. I begin to forget the war. I don’t think much about people perishing. Missions and unreached people drop out of my mind. I stop dreaming about the triumphs of grace. I sink into a secular mind-set that looks first to what man can do, not what God can do. It is a terrible sickness. And I thank God for those who have forced me again and again toward a wartime mind-set.”
― John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life
