The Purpose of Life...

  Life is a precious gift from God. It is God who “forms the spirit
of man within him” (Zechariah 12:1), and it is to God that our
spirits return after death (Ecclesiastes 12:7). Consequently, it
would seem that men ought to use their lives to please God.
But rather than striving to “seek the Lord” (Acts 17:27), men
often expend their energies in other ventures.
Some, for example, act as if their purpose in life is to gain
physical wealth. And to that end they focus all of their efforts.
Those who struggle in this area should be reminded of several
basic Biblical truths:
1) “One’s life does not consist in the abundance of things he
possesses” (Luke 12:15);
2) Christians ought to “lay up for [themselves] treasures in
heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where
thieves do not break in and steal” (Matthew 6:20); and
3) “The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil” (1 Timothy
6:10). Life’s purpose is not to amass earthly wealth.
Others act as if their purpose in life is to maintain their physical
health. While it should be granted that our bodies are
important to God (1 Corinthians 6:19), and that “bodily exercise
profits a little” (1 Timothy 4:8), it must be remembered that at
the longest, our lives are but brief (James 4:14). For this
reason, we must make sure that we do not become so
consumed with caring for our bodies that we lose focus upon
Still others act as if the purpose of life is to experience
pleasure. this, too, misses the point of our existence. Our
purpose is to “Fear God and keep His commandments. For this
is man’s all” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
