"The two most important days in your life 

are the day you are born 

and the day you find out why." 

– attributed to Mark Twain

What is your "Why"?  

Saint Paul realized that he was chasing the wrong "why." In a life-changing moment, when Paul heard the voice of God, he completely redirected his life.  In a letter to the Christians in the city of Colossae, he shares this "why" with them,    

“Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” 

To his friends in Corinth, he said, "Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."  

Paul found his "why" when he met Jesus. Telling others about Jesus was how Saint Paul lived out his "why."  I believe we who discover Jesus in our lives all have the same "why."  And that is to share the joy and the love we have experienced with others.  The world desperately needs to hear Good News.  Those of us who know the love of the Lord, need to make sharing that love - that good news - our "why."
