Our One Purpose (Jeremiah 32:39)

“And I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants.” Isn’t that something? Not only is there’d truly one purpose to our lives, worshipping our Lord, but by just fulfilling that one purpose we secure goodness for our entire family. How you worship our Lord will directly impact their goodness displayed to your children. We all want the best for our families and often must make choices for their future. Do we get them involved in sports to learn good sportsmanship but by doing so we endanger their prayer life (and ours) because practice meets on Prayer Meeting Night? Do we make sure our kids see us worshipping more than any other activity (like watching TV or working late) because we truly believe that our worship is the imperative of our lives?
May we be known by our one purpose: worship. May our worship fulfill what we think is our one purpose: securing goodness for our families. Get the first right and the rest falls into place. Get the worship out of sequence and not matter what we try we will not succeed in protecting and growing our families in goodness.
