Why am I here?

Why am I here?

Surely I am not here to engage my wife in battles and quarrels. That is not why I was created. That was not what God put in me. I have 3 children and I will go to the end of the earth to provide for them. That I see is a meaningful reason for my existence i.e. provide for my children.

Is that all? Is that enough?

The trimmings of life– holidays, cars, clothes, houses, jobs, career, business etc are all good and I want to enjoy but getting all these can’t be why I am here.

I will be judged by the difference I made. What difference did I make on planet earth? How many lives did I positively impact with the resources I have?

I have an incredible pull to do the following. From next year at the beginning of each study year I will sponsor a child in school, the child would have exhibited some kind of academic brilliance but hindered by the lack of funds/money due (for example) the poverty of his/her parent. I am excited about this. That would mean every year I sponsor a new child so in ten years I will have 10 children on my books. This is my calling……
