Mattot: The Purpose of Israel

“Purpose” and “Vision”. These are two distinct concepts, yet they are often confused. To live a life of purpose, you have to know what your purpose is, what your mission statement is. Your purpose is your core foundation, your reason for being, why you were created, why you are here. It’s your bedrock foundation and therefore, as the core of your being, the “why” of your life doesn’t change.

And while many people are unclear about their purpose, or avoid the existential inquiry altogether, understanding your purpose is only half of the picture. It’s not enough to discover your mission. In order to actually implement and apply your mission in a meaningful way, you have to have a vision for how you will live it day-to-day, how you will bring your “why” to life. Unlike purpose, vision is flexible. Our “why”, is fixed. Our vision, our “how”, on the other hand, can, and must be capable of change.
