Purpose Driven Jac 1, again

I know I already started on this book years ago, but somehow lost track. It took me some serious shaking up in my life again before I found myself holding the book again. I searched for my old answers to compare with my answers today until I go beyond the days I already did the book.

As for Day 1, my answer is still the same, though I admit I forgot this the whole time... until now.

"Chapter One: In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?

I'd say mainly by holding on to the understanding that our relationship with God is like a child to its parent. i got this insight from my former Architecture classmate John John Ong, and i'll always be grateful for that because only then did everything make sense. Why we're created. Why He let all those things happen. It's because He wante to create something to love, and maybe be loved back. He will always hope for the best for each and every one of us like any parent would for their child. And the child, however successful and happy one seems to be, the joy is only multiplied when shared with the ones they love and loves them. And God is the One who we can always be sure who loves us. So it's much easier to find joy when we share our successes with the ones we love and love us. God is One of them. We can even thank Him for those successes ;)"
