If you don’t the the purpose of something then you are likely to misuse it. If you know the WHY then you can know the HOW. People struggle with the purpose for their life. Often they are focused on the HOW instead of the WHY.
Today we look at the Scripture to understand our Why – our purpose so then we can know How to accomplish it.
For when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his fathers and his body decayed. Acts 13:36 (NIV)

He chose his servant David, calling him from the sheep pens. 71 He took David from tending the ewes and lambs and made him the shepherd of Jacob’s descendants— God’s own people, Israel. Psalm 78:70-71
