What is your personal "mission statement"?

mine is —do not be offended, it is MINE and I do not expect it to be everybody elses’! (I have it as my email siggy)— :

I am a Christian. --Matthew 28: 18-20. History proves the Church He was talking to became known as the Catholic Church with the See of St. Peter in Rome - He did not say He would support schism or reform or protest , He said He would be with THIS Church until the End. I do NOT believe in Bible Alone (Sola Scriptura), I DO believe in God’s Word alone. 2Thessalonians 2:15, Matthew 4:4 -God’s Word is Scripture, Tradition and the Magisterium of the Church as directed by the Holy Spirit. I believe in Apostolic authority and succession; and the Real Presence in the Eucharist.-- I am a Roman Catholic.

it’s in my signature. :slight_smile:

My mission is to get to heaven and take as many people with me as I can.

John 13 34-35

13:34 I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.

13:35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

I try to apply this as much as I can across all walks of life.

‘Don’t be a jerk’.

Me too! All for the glory of God and the salvation of souls! :slight_smile:

You took the words right out of my mouth, er, keyboard!


My personal mission statement? to love God with all my heart, mind, soul and strength and my neighbour as myself. :wink:

Striving for sainthood!:wink:

To live the life of a BSP/CFP penitent. For my corporal work of mercy, to ransom those enslaved to alcohol and drugs. (23 years sober in AA). For my spiritual work of mercy, to pray for the holy souls of purgatory as much as I can. Also to spoil cats rotten.:o

If I can get out of here alive , then you can too.

I Have My Mission
[LEFT]1. God was all-complete, all-blessed in Himself, but it was His will to create a world for His glory. He is Almighty, and might have done all things Himself, but it has been His will to bring about His purposes by the beings He has created. We are all created to His glory–we are created to do His will. I am created to do something or to be something for which no one else is created; I have a place in God’s counsels, in God’s world, which no one else has; whether I be rich or poor, despised or esteemed by man, God knows me and calls me by my name.
2. God has created me to do Him some definite service; He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission–I never may know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. Somehow I am necessary for His purposes, as necessary in my place as an Archangel in his–if indeed, I fail, He can raise another, as He could make the stones children of Abraham. Yet I have a part in this great work: I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good, I shall do His work; I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place, while not intending it, if I do but keep His commandments and serve Him in my calling.
3. Therefore I will trust Him. Whatever, wherever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him; in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him; if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. My sickness, or perplexity, or sorrow may be necessary causes of some great end, which is quite beyond us. He does nothing in vain; He may prolong my life, He may shorten it; He knows what He is about. He may take my friends, He may throw me among strangers, He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide the future from me–still He knows what He is about.
0 my God, I give myself to Thee. I trust Thee wholly. Thou art wiser than I–more loving to me than I myself. Deign to fulfill Thy high purposes in me whatever they be; work in and through me. I am born to serve Thee, to be Thine, to be Thy instrument. Let me be Thy blind instrument. I ask not to see, I ask not to know–I ask simply to be used.[/LEFT]
from John Henry Newman’s Meditations and Devotions

For me to live is Christ and to die is gain…but to those who I meet along the way I always stress “if you meet me and forget me you lose nothing, if you meet Jesus and Forget Him you lose everything.”

To live this day as an altar to what I believe.

My mission: According to Judaism, all people, regardless of origin have a place in the World to Come, provided that they believe in one G-d and follow seven basic rules that are intended for humankind. In fact, Judaism is the only religion I know of that has room in its “heaven” for those who are not members of the religion. The seven rules are:

  1. Believe in one G-d This includes a prohibition against worshipping idols or anything or anyone besides G-d. 2. Do not Blaspheme G-d A person should recognize G-d as the Creator of all things and give Him due respect. 3. Do not Kill It is important to regard human life as sacred and not to cause anyone harm. 4. Do not Commit Immoral Sexual Acts One should not commit incest, adultery and other sins which undermine the family. 5. Do not Steal Another’s property and rights should be respected. 6. Do not be cruel to animals The commandment speaks specifically about eating the limb of a living creature, and is interpreted to encourage appropriate treatment of other creatures. 7. Create a judicial system The purpose of this judicial system is to enforce the other six laws.

These seven laws are referred to as the Noahide Laws, and were revealed to the world when G-d made a covenant with Noah after the flood. However, they existed long before that time and were followed by Adam, the first human being.
