"Let us endeavor to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry!"-Mark Twain
Everyone matters, everyone makes a difference! We are all part of God's creation and designed with a purpose. The greatest day in anyone's life is when they understand exactly what that purpose is! Only then can we embark on our journey to fulfill that calling. The time leading up to that point is merely training camp for the grand performance.
All of want to live a life of significance. It's human nature to yearn for validation for a job well done. Even the humble wish for recognition that their purpose was fulfilled. That expression of appreciation is the fuel that moves the cause forward in a committed manner. I often think of Mother Theresa, one of the most humble individuals that ever lived, yet she was driven by the validation of her Savior seeking those sweet words, "Well done my good and faithful servant."
Seek your purpose! Never allow those who don't understand we are all here by design to deter you from achieving that pinnacle. Help them see they too have a purpose. Nothing turns the head of a non-believer like when they understand they were created for a reason, and the alternative theory makes them insignificant.
