When King Louis XIV of France was dethroned, someone kidnapped his son. They tried to spoil him and dethrone him. The people who captured him exposed him to vulgar language, excessive alcohol and women—anything to feed his passions and to try to keep him from fulfilling his destiny. After 6 months he refused and refused and refused. Finally his captors said, “Why haven’t you succumbed to any of these passions? Why haven’t you indulged yourself in any of these things?” The king’s son replied “I cannot indulge in any of those things because I was born to be a king!”

Everyone of you is born to be a king, born to be a queen, born to be a spiritual being. We are all here to fullfill our God-given purpose.
