If a sheet of paper is sold but is never printed upon to be seen or read, how much did it really matter. If that paper is used to relay a message of hate or death, did it ever become something of value. I know these are somewhat relative questions, but I want you to ponder the message of your life. Your life is like a blank sheet of paper produced to deliver a message to all who encounter you. What is the message you were created to deliver? What is the impact of the message you display and how well do you know the author? The late Dr. Myles Munroe once said, “Where purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable.” If you haven’t pondered the questions above regarding your life, then by definition you have not made your life “matter.” Matter is defined as the subject under consideration. There are many others with considerations for your life, but what is most important is the message the Creator has given you to share. Purpose can only be discovered in the mind of the Creator because He holds the reason why you matter. Matter is also defined as the substance a physical thing is composed of, however without the first definition I gave, the second one really doesn’t matter. As sign can be composed of wood, metal, or plastic, but what really makes it matter is the message it signifies like, Stop, Entrance, Exit, or Dead End.
Before you dismiss your existence as a mere accident, irrelevant, or without purpose, consider these facts. For you to be reading this the following occurrences had to take place precisely. You had to be selected from 6,000,000 eggs to make a group of 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 by 40 weeks; From that 1,000,000 or 2,000,000 you had to be selected from a group of around 300,000 within the next 12 or so years; then of that 300,000 or so you had to avoid being apart of the 1,000 eggs eliminated every month for the next 144 months (if your mother gave birth to you around the age of 24). Each month, while trying to avoid elimination, of the remaining hundreds of thousands of eggs, only 1 egg will be selected for a chance to be fertilized. When you were chosen to be that egg, there still had to be coordination between two people who had undergone the same selection process, and they had to meet at the right moment in all of time, and at the right place in all of space and then come together during an opportune moment which lasted about 10 to 24 hours. Why that egg, union, and earth day was chosen for you is revealed through a relationship between you and your Heavenly Father, the Creator. The key words in all that I have shared are “chosen” and “selected.” These words infer purpose because the coordination of your life took a mastermind, not chance.
For something to have matter, it is only because it first mattered. Purpose proceeds creation. Love is what nurtures and reveals that purpose. GOD is love. Fulfill your purpose by seeking GOD through studying and applying the principles of love which are revealed through holy scripture and creation.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV)
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse… (Romans 1:19-20 KJV)
Our lives matter more than we or others tend to know. By walking in the discipline of Love, we ensure the time we have is leveraged for the best outcomes.
