Chapter 3: Purpose Driven - What Drives Your Life?

  • Many people are driven by guilt
    • But god can redeem you even if you're a murderer or a coward
  • Many people are driven by resentment and anger
    • And letting it go is best for you ( I agree!)
  • Many people are driven by fear
    • Move against fear with faith in god
  • Many people are driven by materialism
    • Wealth will not make you happy or secure, only god can do that
  • Many people are driven by the need for approval
    • Don't try to please everyone, just god
