Chapter 5: Purpose Driven - Seeing Life from God's View

In this chapter, Warren starts out by making the point that everyone has a life metaphor, whether explicit or implicit. And you may be living with the wrong one.

He suggests two metaphors to live by in this chapter, 'Life is a test' and 'Life is a trust."

Life is a test
God is always testing you and watching you. Everything in your life is a test from god. If you do well, you are in his graces. If you do poorly, you are not.

Life is a trust
This is really just a specific kind of test. Warren mainly speaks to managing wealth as a test god gives you to see if you are trustworthy.

In short, you should always be wary that god is watching your every move. He knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you're awake. He knows when you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake. Or more appropriately, be good because you're being watched!
