I know we said we were going to dive into Module 4 of FPAM Biblical Foundation training, but someone reminded of something that I thought would be beneficial to lead with before diving into the last section.
Everyone has a WHAT in their life. What you do, what you've accomplished, or even what you want for others. But I want to ask WHY? WHY do you do WHAT you do?
When we figure out the why then the what becomes more impactful. Anyone can do whatever it is their doing, but imagine if that person had a why driving what they do. Then, what becomes more desirable, meaningful, effective, etc.
Before we go any further, we want you to watch this short video from Michael Jr.
The reason this gentleman sings the first version is a what. This is what he does as a job. It was mechanical, according to the way he teaches, uniform. When given a purpose or why he passion for singing the song changes. You feel it, the crowd felt it, and don't lie... you got goosebumps didn't you?
So WHY are we teaching Biblical Foundations? WHY are we so determined to help others see Gods glory via His word? Because like Michael Jr. asks, "I wonder if there are some skills or talents that people don't know about?" Valid question and a question we should all be asking ourselves.
But let us rephrase the question, "What skills or talents has God given you that you haven't tapped into yet? This question helps explain the WHY in what we do. We have a passion (our WHY) to help people understand His word (the WHAT), so they have the foundation on which to understand His calling in their lives (skills and talents).
23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
WHATever we do, work heartily, as for the Lord (WHY). Let us know confuse you. We are not saying to quit your WHAT in pursuit of His WHY for your life. We are merely saying to discover His WHY for your life so that WHAT you do will be for His glory, for His kingdom, and for the benefit of others. Turn your WHAT into His WHY.
