Why are you here? Why does God allow your heart to continue beating? We are meant to do so much more than consume oxygen. Sure, enjoying all that life has to offer can consume almost all of our time. And I believe God does want us to be happy. But as we read in Ecclesiastes 2:1,
I said to myself, “Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good.”
But that also proved to be meaningless. And in Ecclesiastes 2:11,
Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun.
That’s where the S.H.A.P.E. gifts survey is so important. What God made you to BE determines what He intends for you to DO. You will understand the purpose you were created for when You understand the kind of person you are. This is the secret of knowing God’s will for your life!
