What drives us?
What is the “Why” for what we do or do not do?
To our chagrin, if we are honest, we realize that much of our decisions are driven by what we believe is good for us, what others expect of us, and/or to avoid consequences. But among the 31,102 verses in the Bible (according to Wikipedia), there are the following three verses:
“Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, [a]not we ourselves [and we are His].
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.” (Psalm 100:3, AMP).
“For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].” (Ephesians 2:10, AMP).
“So then, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of [our great] God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31, AMP).
And I wonder, how different would my life, our lives be if our decisions are guided by these truths? If these truths become our “Why?” If these truths are what drive us daily, moment to moment?
