In the quest for purpose, we must distinguish between proximate and remote purposes. The proximate refers to that which is close at hand. The remote refers to the distant, far-off, ultimate purpose. The football player’s proximate goal is to make a first down. The more remote goal is a touchdown. The even more remote goal is to win the game. The ultimate goal is to win a championship.
Sometimes the proximate and the remote seem to be mutually exclusive. The divine intention is the exact opposite of the human intention. Humans have one goal; God has a different one. The amazing truth is that the remote purpose is served by the proximate one.
Think about how proximate purpose may be contributing to God’s remote purpose in your life.
Now that you read these beautiful lines, Trust in God’s plans for you. No moment, No act, No lesson learnt is waste. It is taking you to your final purpose decided by God for you
Stay Blessed and Stay Cheerful always 😀
Loads of Love,
