Catechism Numero Uno

"To glorify Him and enjoy Him forever"

The simplest of phrases that has had a phenomenal effect on me as of late. It is one of those basic mantras that many of us bible-belters learned in our elementary Sunday school classes, but it's beauty and significance has recently been brought to light for me. This is our chief end, our main purpose, our sole motive for life. I've been dwelling on this phrase daily and particularly appreciate calling it into thought first thing in the morning. There are few things that can give you better perspective for life than reminding yourself daily of your purpose for living. All other things fade away and fall limp with unimportance when you remember that the reason we are all alive today is "to glorify Him and enjoy Him forever."

Really lends some much needed perspective, doesn't it?
