Life is so much better…with God.
What if I told you that everything you did today was important? What if I told you that everything you do every day is important? You’re right – that wouldn’t be new. People, especially Christians, have been teaching that our lives are important for thousands of years. But have you ever stopped to ask why?
This week at church, the pastor said:
“It’s God’s bigger story for the world that gives our every day activities meaning.”
WOW! That’s an amazing concept to think about. If that line is true – “God’s bigger story gives our lives meaning” – it has a lot of implications for our lives and raises a lot of questions.
First, it means God has a bigger story – something he’s trying to accomplish. What is that? What is God’s “plan”? What is God’s bigger “story”?
Secondly, it means we have a part in that bigger story. It means that our lives can have meaning and impact. How can we figure out our place in the story? Does EVERY action have meaning? Or only the things we do for God?
Since I’m full of questions too, I don’t want to say anything else. I just want to ask you what you think. What do you think is God’s story for the world? What do you think your part is within God’s story? Comment below and continue the discussion…
