Earlier on, I defined what purpose means. Life is a mystery on its own. People are yet to uncover secrets about life/ earth. Scientists have tried to come up with various theories, facts as to what makes this and that work. Some have been confirmed to be true while others are still hanging. Yet, there is another mystery. The mystery of human beings, the mystery of you and me. Have you tried to examine yourself, life, and ask questions like, why do I do things this way? What is my purpose in life? How did the earth come about? There must be a source, a higher power. The answer to this is in Genesis 1.
People are all about getting jobs, degrees, having healthy relationships and every beautiful thing life has to offer so that they can enjoy life on earth better. Although this is good, it’s important not to forget that life does not end on earth, it continues to eternity. All the houses, certificates, businesses, etc you were chasing here on earth, will not follow you to the afterlife/ eternity.
How do I know this? Well, look around you. People lived way before you and me. Some of the houses built in the 1600s, 1700s, 1800s are still here with us while the owners have left for eternity. Do you think if these people had their way they would prefer to leave the mansions behind? I believe King Solomon realized this later in his life hence his statement, “vanity upon vanity, all is vanity”.
As you go about your daily activities, pursuing after various courses in life, don’t forget that a time will come when all these will be left behind. Invest wisely. Life is just for a period of time hence the word, “lifetime”. There is a place superior to earth and it’s called Heaven, don’t miss it.
There is a post about one’s purpose in life which can be found here.
