Pure purpose

I have heard people ask what their purpose is here on earth. Beyond the standard answer of “Love God, love others”, I would like to offer some deeper insight.

Think about something you do that brings you great joy or happiness. Joy being a deep sense of “this is awesome” even if it is a painful experience. Happiness would be if it brings a smile to your face. My definitions, no need to check Webster’s.

So what action in your life puts you in one of those two states of being? Do you know what that item is? Good, now take that action and find a way to serve and honor other people with it. giving your 100% to it for the sake of other people. This is the love others part.

So what about the “Love God” part? The evidence of your Love for God is that you did it for someone else and not yourself even though it brings you happiness and joy.
