People are the Purpose – How I changed my perspective.

Have you ever asked God to show you what to do with your business or in your job?  
I have! When I prayed for God to show me what to do with my business, I felt like he told me “I want you to help others succeed.”  

It was in that moment that I realized – PEOPLE are the purpose, not money. 

When it comes to purpose; this is what I know about money…

Money is a GOOD follower, but a TERRIBLE leader.

It’s easy to have the wrong perspective with our purpose occasionally. I know I have made that mistake in our business by being profit focused over people focused… and it is never fruitful.  Serving and adding value to people is always the best purpose and focus.

So, what is our purpose? 

  1. Our purpose is always about building God’s Kingdom, everything else is a byproduct of that. It is the lens that we need to look at everything through – building God’s kingdom.
  • Matthew 6:33 (BAR) – Make the Kingdom of God and life in loyalty to Him, the object of all your endeavor, and you will get all these other things as well. 
  1. Our purpose and God’s plan for our life is always about others and serving people.
  • 1 Peter 4:10 NIV – Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 

Personal Challenge: Reevaluate your purpose in your business, your career, and in your relationships. Are you pursuing them for money, or to bring value to other people’s lives?
