The Purpose of Life

To live a spiritual journey–faithfully;

love and serve others–meaningfully;

and do my best–joyously.

One sentence, three parts, seven values.

I had a mission statement I thought was good when someone approached me and said he was searching for the purpose of his life. He asked my opinion on life mission.  I realized my mission statement needed more depth.

I invested 10 minutes daily for a month to pray and listen then act on what I heard and discerned. I changed my mission statement to the above.

You will likely see the three main sources of Scripture in it (Love the Lord…Love your neighbor…do you best with your talents…) supported by common sense. I believe, it is a mission statement that fits most people.  The planbook I am writing tells more of the purpose of life and helps us write our mission statements.
