We Need To Know Our Purpose On Earth!

 God created us out of his love and gave us a job to accomplish while we are on earth.  Most of us have not found our purpose so we continue to live the life God gave us to only service our needs.   When we do not know or understand our purpose in life, we tend to get easily influenced by anything and anyone.

 When you were born, God already knew the experiences you would encounter in your life.  Your life was planned on earth before you were conceived by your parents.  God gave all of us life for a reason.  He wanted everyone to the share the love he created in us with the world.  Some of us were able to find our purpose and share the love that is within us such as people who are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandmothers, grandfathers, doctors, teachers, nurses, pastors, great leaders, and presidents.  God created George Washington whose purpose in life was to be the first president.  God created Gandhi whose purpose in life was to protest for the rights of all Indians in South Africa in 1893.  These are two examples of a great leader and president who were put on earth to accomplish their purpose.   There are many great leaders who fulfilled their purpose on earth and they are also people like you and I who are continuing to fulfill our purpose by servicing or helping others.

 When you put love into servicing others or anything you do, that is fulfilling your purpose.  I understand we have obligations in life. You may ask how we can spend our lives helping people by doing volunteer work all day.  The job we have and get a pay check for is a way of fulfilling your purpose as long as you put love into your job.  I recall when I was young; my father took me to his job.  He was a janitor at a hospital.  I watched my father show kindness to everyone at the hospital and he was happy doing his job as a janitor.  He made the people there laugh and they were inspired by his kindness.  When my father retired, there were so many people at his retirement party. They all said how sad it will be not to see my father at work.  My father touched so many lives with his kindness. I am sure there are so many people like my father such as a teacher who touched a student’s life by mentoring the student to reach his/her fullest potential.  We all have it in us to be kind to people at work and outside of work. Your kind gestures can make another person happy and at peace.

 Rick Warren stated “The search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousands of years.  That’s because we typically begin at the wrong starting point-ourselves.  We ask self-centered questions like What do I want to be? What should I do with my life?  What are my goals, my ambitions, my dreams for my future? But focusing on ourselves will never reveal our life’s purpose.”

 People have to realize we were created from God’s love.  His love is within us so we can fulfill our purpose on earth. It seems that most of us became easily influenced and we made a choice to be selfish and focus on only our needs.This could be the reason our beautiful earth has been polluted with hate.
