So many people, especially young people, ask me this. When I tell them the reason behind what we do is because of our vision, I get blank stares.
“But, what vision? What’s a vision?”
Let me just say right now, this is not some “God-came-to-me-in-a-dream” deal. This is what our whole scope, our whole life is about. The Westminster Shorter Catechism Question 1 is “What is the chief end of man?” The answer? “To glorify God and to enjoy Him forever”.
THAT is our vision. To glorify God in our lives. What does that have to do with our daily tasks, our roles, our mundane? Everything. You have to have a vision for the future. If you’re a wife of a godly man, he will have a vision and your role is to further his vision.
There will be different aspects to your vision, or visions for different areas of your life. Luke and I have a vision for how we want to parent; for the atmosphere of our home. Luke has a vision for his company; I have jobs and duties to further that. We have a vision for hospitality and servanthood in our family, so I have to be proactive in reaching out and inviting people over.
Your vision may be different.
Different seasons of life will call for different areas to work on.
But, we must remember that our chief end, our biggest vision, should be to glorify God. To further HIS Kingdom.
