On Friday 15th April we all gathered together for snacks and popcorn, as we watched a movie with a deep and fruitful message behind it.
We watched Captive, starring Kate Mara and David Oyelowo:
We won’t ruin too much of it for you, but a key part of this movie which is based on a true story, features a popular and well-known book called The Purpose Driven Life written by Rick Warren.
This book has the ability to help you seek and discover your God-given purpose, with the help of scripture and motivational words.
Some extracts from The Purpose Driven Life:
“If you want your life to have impact, focus it! Stop dabbling. Stop trying to do it all. Do less. Prune away even good activities and do only that which matters most. Never confuse activity with productivity. You can be busy without a purpose, but what’s the point?”
“You are the only person on earth who can use your abilities. No one else can play your role, because they don’t have the unique shape that God has given you.”
“God made you to be you! You can learn from the examples of others, but you must filter what you learn through your own shape.”
