Friends, today it’s all about People, Purpose & Platforms! But first, I have a question for you: Are you passionately pursuing God’s purpose for your life?
Culture and social media are filled with many cliché statements that we tend to take as truth:
- “Do what you love and never work another day in your life.”
- “Do whatever makes you happy.”
- “Life’s better when you’re happy.”
- “Do more of whatever makes you happy.”
- “Don’t live your life for anyone else but you.”
Here’s the issue: It’s all about us and what we want. We’ve fallen for the lie that fame, fortune, and being known bring happiness and contentment. We’ve fallen for the belief that “success,” according to culture and social media, is what we should aim for. And, we’ve fallen prey to believing that pursuing our purpose is what makes life great.
But yet, God’s ways are different. How do we find our purpose? How do we find true fulfillment and success in our lives and careers? We tackle these questions in today’s episode! I specifically chat through:
💥 Pursuing His purpose in our generation
💥 Shepherding the people He has called us to shepherd
💥 Why “empty metrics have eroded our hope, souls, and contentment” (Alex Mandura)
Friends, don’t be afraid to pursue what God has called you to pursue, even when it makes no sense. Why? Because “shepherds don’t live their life on a platform” (Steve DeNeff). Shepherds seek the purpose that God has given them for their generation.
