Purpose of Life

At some point, just about everyone asks about their purpose in life.  Recently, I ran across a blog post that briefly explored the subject.  While the author keeps a positive spin on it, he offers no solid answers.  Thankfully, God does provide a response to this critical subject.


A Life Pleasing to God

Today, we study the following… 1 Thes 4.9  Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another, 10 for that indeed is what you are doing to all the brothers throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, 11 and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, 12 so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.

I stumbled across this passage in doing a quick study a week or two ago.  I have listened to many sermons on various topics and scriptures.  Yet, if I have heard one on this passage, it does not spring to mind.  I know of no one who quotes it, or uses it as a rule to live by.  Yet, it has quickly become a favorite of my wife and I.  In many ways, it echoes what we try to do in our own lives.
