People who lose their way are people who’ve lost their why (Kary Oberbrunner, motivation speaker and author).
Some people seem not to know what it is they want to do or where they want to go. As we say, “they’ve lost their way.” They seem to struggle with life, especially the important question of what they should be doing. Oberbrunner highlights what may be the key issue. If we don’t know why we are here—what our purpose is—it certainly will be difficult to find our way.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them (Romans 8:28).
Our purpose is to please God, not people (1 Thessalonians 2:4).
