I recently purchased, "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick
recommended to me by a dear friend of mine. It is divided into
40 chapters, symbolic of the number 40, which is a spiritually
transforming number in scriptures. The author recommends
that you read one chapter per day, ponder on it, and react to it.
He recommends reading the book with another friend, so you
can encourage each other, and discuss the books thoughts together.
He begins the book with DAY ONE: "It All Starts With God". His
main point is, "To discover your purpose in life you must turn to
God's Word, not the world's wisdom." (page 20) He quotes from
a variety of translations, trying to select the best passage to
illustrate the examples he has chosen.
"In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according
to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with
the purpose of his will." (Ephesians 1:11)
