Rick Warren

The Bible tells us that in the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in his cosmic loneliness and God said, “Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see what we have done.” And God created living creatures including man. As man alone could speak he asked God, “What is the purpose of all this?”

“Is it necessary that everything have a purpose?” asked God.

“Certainly,” said man.

“Then I leave it to you to think of one for all this,” said God. And He went away.”

You are not an accident. Even before the universe was created, God had you in mind, and he planned you for his purposes. These purposes will extend far beyond the few years you will spend on earth. You were made to last forever!
