For What Purpose?

What are we doing? Is it right?
Do we take thought of the purpose? The true purpose?
Intentions. Good intentions. The best of intentions.
For what purpose?
What are we doing? Spinning our wheels?
Accomplishing a task? Fulfilling a dream?
For what purpose?
Do we consider the outcome? Do we look outside ourselves?
Do we consider there is a greater purpose?
Do we know the true purpose?
Have we asked? Or listened?
Do we hear what is being said? Truly said?
Do we look inside ourselves? Or see more than ourselves?
Do we dare?
Do we truly know?
For what purpose, For what purpose?

Proverbs 2:1-5
If you accept My words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom & applying your heart to understanding, and if you look for it as for silver & search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord & find the knowledge of God.
