“Those who help others are helped.” Proverbs 11:25 MSG

One of the best ways to keep your life in balance and stay on track spiritually is to pass on what you know to others. The Bible says, “Those who help others are helped.” As you pass along your insights, you will get more insights from God. Paul challenged Timothy: “Now I want you to tell these same things to followers who can be trusted to tell others” (2 Timothy 2:2 CEV). If you know people who haven’t discovered their God-given purpose in life yet, it’s your job to share with them what has been shared with you. For example, don’t just read this devotional and keep it to yourself, share it with your friends. The more you know, the more God expects you to use that knowledge to help others. That’s how things are supposed to work in His kingdom. James wrote, “Anyone who knows the right thing to do, but does not do it, is sinning” (James 4:17 NCV). In other words, increased knowledge brings increased responsibility. Passing along the purpose of life to others is more than just an obligation; it’s one of our greatest privileges. Imagine how different the world would be if everyone knew their calling. That’s why Paul wrote, “If you teach these things to other followers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 4:6 CEV). Not only does God want us to live out His purposes, He wants us to help others do the same. That is what assignment-centred living is all about. Regardless of your age, the rest of your life can be the best of your life if you will do this one thing – start living on purpose!
