You do not have a future if there is no vision you have committed your time, attention, energy and resources towards. Think about it; your education, discipline and resources require a central goal. Young and naive people think their goal is to make money, but they soon realize that money is not an end in itself. You want to align yourself with a vision. You want to fight for a cause. There is a world you want to watch over, and steer towards where God wants. Your purpose is all about responding to the burden God wants you to bear and bearing it.
The Almighty God is heard rebuking the gods in the Book of Psalms (Psalms 82). The word rendered “god” here (note the small g), is best understood as God’s representatives in the world. It is talking about the high and mighty. This is referring to anybody God has empowered to be in a position to influence their world. God said, “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked” (Psalm 82:2-4 ESV). You can see here what God wants. When God increases your might; he wants you to fight a righteous cause.
You are growing in knowledge, strength and grace. However, this is not directed towards a righteous cause. When there is no eternal vision in view, your spiritual growth and development is pointless. We see the raw, majestic strength and beauty you possess inside your soul. But then the sad truth dawns upon us – it is all useless and a waste. You could have spoken up against injustice and laziness. You could have joined an organisation dedicated to building technology that empowers people to be more productive. There was always a chance for you to pioneer an organisation with sweat and blood, dedicated to championing some SDGs in your world. How do you turn your back to all of that and choose yourself over impacting the larger society?
