When there is no purpose, there is no pull. Where there is no target, there is no tension - Daily Bible Reflections October 1,2015

THE PULL OF PURPOSE
 
“Go on your way…” – Luke 10:3
 
       During World War II, in a Nazi concentration camp, cruel doctors experimented on the most effective way to crush the human spirit. They thought of removing every remaining shred of physical comfort. So they removed chairs, beds and extra clothes in the prison cells. The prisoners suffered, but they survived.
       Next, the prison guards cut the food ration to half and increased their work to 16 hours a day. Again, the prisoners suffered tremendously, but they survived.
       Then the Nazis tried one last experiment. One morning, the prison guards asked the prisoners to dig a hole in the ground. So
the entire day, with shovels and pickax and wheelbarrow, they made a gigantic hole. The next day, the prison guards asked the prisoners to cover the hole again. The prisoners were perplexed, but they obeyed. Every day, the guards asked them to do the very opposite of what they did the previous day. On and on it went.
       The result? Two weeks later, the prisoners began to die one by one. Why? More than our need for food, comfort or sleep, we need purpose. We need the tension of purpose. When our tasks have no more purpose, something in us dies.
       Friend, what gives purpose to your life? Bo Sanchez (bosanchez@kerygmafamily.com)
 
Reflection: When there is no purpose, there is no pull. Where there is no target, there is no tension.
 
May my purpose in life be before me forever, Lord.
 
St. Therese of the Child Jesus, virgin, Patroness of the Missions, pray for us.
