At some point in everyone's life, we ponder and/or seek the meaning and purpose of our life. Why are we here? What are we supposed to do? What can give my existance meaning? This as been the great question since the beginning of time.
The problem with this search is where we look. Would you seek advise about being a better basketball player from the Greatest of all time or from a little league player? Seems like a ridiculous question until we realize that our life's most important search for answers is done is a similar way. We tend to turn this world for answers instead of the ine that designed us.
Matt. 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Jesus tells us that our life should be spent glorifying God!
