There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why. (William Barclay, 20th century Scottish Bible scholar)
None of us can remember the day we were born, but others may have told us how happy a day that was. And, certainly, it was the launching of a life’s experience that is completely unique to us. Barclay’s comment is a challenge for us to discover that purpose each of us has in life and to develop it fully to the glory of God and the blessing of all we can influence.
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)
