Randall L. Ridd, January 2015 CES Devotional

February 1, 2015

I’m not sure there is much significance in the letter Y as a name for your generation, but I do think there is value in thinking of yourselves as the “Why?” Generation. It is important, in today’s world, to be intentional about why you do what you do.

Living with real intent means understanding the “why” and being aware of the motives behind your actions. Socrates said, “An unexamined life is not worth living.” Ponder how you spend your time, and ask yourself regularly, “Why?” This will help you develop the ability to see beyond the moment. It’s far better to look ahead and ask yourself, “Why would I do that?” than to look back and say, “Why, oh, why did I do that?” If the only reason why is that God wants you to, that’s reason enough.
