The search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousand of years.That is because we typically begin at the wrong starting point (ourselves) by asking self-seeking questions like:
- what do I want to be?
- What should i do with my life?
- what are my goals, my ambition,my dreams, my future?
Focusing on ourselves will never reveal our life’s purpose.
Many popular books, movies and seminars will tell us to look within ourselves to discover the true meaning of life our purpose.
God created us and has our life manual, so since we did not create ourselves it becomes more sensible to consult the manufacturer/ creator God. We must understand that we cannot arrive at our life’s purpose by starting with a focus on ourselves, we must begin with God our creator, we exist because he wills that we exist. We were made by God and for God.
Rick proposes that it is only in God that we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance and our destiny and until we understand this Life is meaningless.
