Man in Pursuit of Purpose
by Clarence Boyd on February 10th, 2016

Dr. Myles Munroe, in his book: “In Pursuit of Purpose”, states that “purpose is the only source of individual and/or corporate fulfillment.”

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines fulfillment as:
a) the act or process of fulfilling, or
b) the act or process of delivering a product.

The root word for fulfillment is—fulfill. This word simply means:
a) to do what is required by something,
b) to succeed in doing or providing something, and
c) to succeed in achieving something. 

When applied to manhood, a number of questions must be asked:
Are men really doing what is required of them?
Are men providing what is expected of them?
Are men achieving in exemplifying what it means to be a man, a husband, or a father? 

Dr. Munroe goes on to share “that purpose always represents the original intent for something.” This infers that a man must know what was in the heart of his Creator for his existence if he is to understand why he is on this earth.  It is evident that over time man has lost sight of his original purpose. Fathers have failed to impart to their sons the revelation of manhood from a biblical perspective.  This is necessary because the original purpose for the man is found in the Bible. No man can find inner meaning or achieve fulfillment without an understanding of purpose applied to his own life.
As we begin this year, I challenge each of you, as men, to pursue your purpose. But more importantly, I admonish you to pursue your purpose in light of God’s original intent for all men!
