The purpose of a man is to know his destination and also get to his destination. Basically, at age twelve Jesus, had discovered his purpose which is to proclaim the gospel of God.
After the Passover festival in Jerusalem, the parents of Jesus had thought that Jesus was with them to the Journey back home but when they learned that he was not with them, they had to go back to Jerusalem in search of the boy Jesus.
There they found him in the temple sitting in the midst of teachers, listening to them, and asking them Questions all who heard him were amazed. (Luke 2: 46-47)
The purpose will make a man stay strong in what he believes in, not trying to follow the crowd, he never believed in the throng because they create a distraction.
Have you discovered your purpose? If yes! Then you are lucky and this article might not be of much interest to you, but if not this is the right place to be at the moment.
When a man discovers his purpose he usually has peace of mind because he had discovered his hidden treasure that nobody no about.
However, look at the little Jesu who had decided not to mention his way about to his parents Mary and Joseph, because of the Joy of discovering where he belongs, he needs no distraction not even from his own parents.
This shows how important for one to discover his purpose and make sure that he guide, nurture, and make use of his purpose by impacting on people’s lives.
Subsequently, note that when they saw him in the temple in the midst of the educated, when asked by his mother “My son, why have you done this to us? Your father and I have been terribly worried about trying to find you.
Please note his answer “Why did you have to look for me? Didn’t you know that I had to be in my Father’s house?
This is a purpose-driven answer until a man discovers his purpose he will continue to live a life trying to please people. Which I know is an error to finding your purpose here on earth.
Also, in the book of John 4:34 “My food,” Jesus said to them, “is to obey the will of the one who sent me and to finish the work he gave me to do.
Before a man dies, it is expected that he finish the work, assignment Christ Jesus gave him to do, which can only be achieved through his purpose and nothing else.
I asked again, what is your purpose here on earth? If you have not discovered your purpose, make sure you do because it will lead you to your destination in life.
