NOVEMBER 26 DESIGNED FOR A SINGLE PURPOSE

And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.

—Genesis 17:9

We are surrounded throughout our lifetime by a multitude of things designed for specific purposes. Without argument, most things are at their best when they are fulfilling their purpose and design.

For instance, a piano is made with a specific purpose: to produce music. However, I happen to know that someone once stood on a piano in order to put a fastener of some kind in the ceiling…. I have seen piano tops that were cluttered filing cabinets or wide library shelves.

There is an intelligent design in the creation of a piano. The manufacturer did not announce: “This is a good piano. It has at least nineteen uses!” No, the designer had only one thought in mind: “This piano will have the purpose and potential of sounding forth beautiful music!”…

Do not miss the application of truth here. God was saying to Abraham, “You may have some other idea about the design and purpose for your life, but you are wrong! You were created in My image to worship Me and to glorify Me. If you do not honor this purpose, your life will degenerate into shallow, selfish, humanistic pursuits.” MMG022-023

May I be faithful, Lord, to the purpose for which You have created me. Life is too short and too futile to waste on anything other than worship of my Creator. Amen. [1]
