Dear Friends,

Every company needs a vision so everyone can follow it and get where they want to go. Many companies fail because they didn’t have a vision. How do you know how to get to where you’re going if you don’t even know where that place is?

The Bible says in Habakkuk 2:2-3 (NLT)

“Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a runner can carry the correct message to others. This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.”

Companies and businesses also need a mission that answers the question: Why do you exist? What is your purpose? Most companies exist to service people, whether they are for profit or not for profit, the end goal is usually to help others by producing services or products that will help people in the end.

Well, the same way, we as humans, need a vision and a mission in life. The vision will help us know where we want to go during our life’s journey. Where do we want to end up at the end of our lives? It’s amazing how many people never think about that and live their lives directionless.

The mission will reveal to us why God created each one of us. He created us for a unique purpose—one that only each of us can fulfill during our lifetime. We need to ask God to reveal our mission to us. Otherwise, we will live purposeless lives, not feeling useful to society, and will also be unfulfilled.

And in the same way that most companies’ vision and mission are related to helping people in some form or another, our personal vision and mission is connected to helping others too. Even the people who dedicate their lives to helping animals or the environment, in the end, they are also serving people so we can all have a better place to live.

Knowing God’s vision and mission for us in our lives is crucial to living the life that God intended us to live. I pray that you ask God to reveal to you His vision and His mission for you. You don’t have to be a world changer in order to feel that you contributed to the world but you do have to feel that you did your part—regardless of how small you may think your part is.

We all have a part to play in the plan of God and it is our responsibility to discover what our part is and then do it.
