A Life With Purpose!
Job 7:6: [Job said], “My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, and are spent without hope.”
Mark 1:35-38: Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, [Jesus] went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him. When they found Him, they said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.” But He said to them, “Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth.”
1 Corinthians 9:16-17, 22b: For if I preach the Gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the Gospel! For if I do this willingly, I have a reward; but if against my will, I have been entrusted with a stewardship… I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. (NKJVTM)
