Sunday Seed Thoughts: Know Why

Seed Thoughts

Scientist, Norber Wiener, once wrote, “There is one quality more important than know-how. This is know-why by which we determine not only how to accomplish our purposes, but what our purposes are to be.”

It other words, “know why” is more important than “know how.” I think this is true not only in living every day life, but in the Lord’s work.

Why do we go to worship?

Why do we attend Bible study classes?

Why pray?

Why give?

Why live a life of purity and holiness?

Why be different from the world?

Why serve others?

Jesus came to give us an abundant life (John 10:10). He not only pointed the way, but gave us a purpose. A reason for life. A reason to be a Christian. Our motives and aims are NOT wrapped up in this life, but in the one that is to come (Jn 14:1-3). I know this world is not my home. There is a better one awaiting. Furthermore the love of God in giving Jesus to die for our sins compels us to live for Him. (2 Cor 5:14).

As we daily focus on “knowing why,” the “how” becomes easier

—Ken Weliever, The Preacherman
