Purpose
 by Mike Tucker *

Author Josh McDowell tells an interesting story about finding purpose in life. He writes: “An executive recruiter, a ‘head-hunter’ who goes out and hires corporation executives for other firms, once told me, ‘When I get an executive that I'm trying to hire for someone else, I like to disarm him. I offer him a drink, take my coat off, then my vest, undo my tie, throw up my feet and talk about baseball, football, family, whatever, until he's all relaxed. Then, when I think I've got him relaxed, I lean over, look him square in the eye and say, ‘What's your purpose in life?’ It's amazing how top executives fall apart at that question.

"Well, I was interviewing this fellow the other day; had him all disarmed, with my feet up on his desk, talking about football. Then I leaned up and said, 'What's your purpose in life, Bob?' And he said, without blinking an eye, 'To go to heaven and take as many people with me as I can.' For the first time in my career I was speechless."

So let me ask you: What is your purpose in life?

If, like the executive in this story, your purpose is to go to heaven and take as many people with you as you can, what are you doing to make that happen?

The very best way to influence people for heaven is to live a life filled with love for everyone. Love will bring more people to heaven than any theological argument. Love wins every argument and eases every doubt.

Let it be your purpose to go to heaven and take everyone you can with you. And let your method be to simply love as Jesus loves.

“A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; even as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:34-35

With Love,
Mike
