I agree, we are a purpose-driven culture. The real question is: what purposes we are driven by, and how we acquire these life-purposes. I think that PDL is an invaluable book in that it articulates clearly and concisely 5 divine purposes to organize your life around. So many believers have allowed the culture to define our purposes. In Warren’s terms, I think that our culture’s default purposes are as follows:
Worship: living for my pleasure
Fellowship: loving myself
Discipleship: becoming like my idol.
Ministry: serving myself
Evangelism: promoting myself
Sounds like the wicked, lazy servant in Matthew 25. This culture needs a book like PDL.
What do you think?
