STOP TAKING THIS ACRONYM TOO SERIOUSLY YOU MAY BE THINKING…
Imagine trying to navigate an unfamiliar area without a map, compass, or directions—you would be hard pressed to find your way. Many people live life in this fashion, drifting aimlessly and flitting from one diversion to another—after all, YOLO. God, on the other hand, offers to be our guide and teacher on this journey through life. He provides us with a clear direction and goal—living life as He intended for us to do, and receiving His acceptance afterwards—and accompanies us every step of the way. The Bible reads, “His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us” (Acts 17:27).
If the Bible is right, we will not only discover how to live life well, but gain hope that our existence is meaningful—as Jesus said, “My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life” (John 10:10).
