Who’s Hungry For Purpose & Social Impact?

Wisdom for the Journey

From The Holy Bible:

“Do not think that because you are in the King’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”

Esther 4:13-14 (NIV)

From You’ve Got to Be Hungry, by Les Brown

“The same HUNGER to live an impactful life that operated through [heroes and legends] is available to us as well. Just like all of us, they had their challenges, failures and setbacks. However, they got up and continued the journey, pressing towards the higher calling. You have greatness in you that is lying dormant – HUNGER waiting to be called forth, waiting to inspire you [and others] to live a life that will outlive you.”

Pg. 13

Introductory Remarks: 

No matter how old you may be, until you discover why you are living, you’ve never lived at all! All of us were created on purpose, for a purpose and with a purpose. There is a calling on your life. The Creator created us to create. For this reason, each of us has a special mark placed upon our lives – something that only the person who carries it can deliver to The Universe. There’s but one requirement you must say ‘YES’ to the HUNGER that is in your heart. Pg. 187

Major Points of the Lesson:

  1. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
  2. “We Believe that rather than devoting our primary efforts to providing for the needy of the world, the time has come to make available to all people everywhere a teaching that will enable them to provide for themselves by learning to release the divine potential within them.” – UFBL We Believe Statement #7. Rev. Donn Nedd
  3. “Saying ‘YES!’ to your purpose prospers you and anyone that has anything to do with you. Your opportunity for social impact is embedded in God’s plan for your life. If you’re hungry to bless your community and the world, say yes to your dreams and purpose.” Jomain McKenzie


You were created on purpose, for a purpose, and with a purpose! You are a masterpiece because you are a piece of The Master! You have greatness within you, but You’ve Got to Be Hungry.

Pg. 17
