Welcome to another episode in my Worldview series. This episode, I discuss purpupose. I propose that knowing our purpose and how it guides our thinking towards truth is important. It is more than just an existential question. It is practical too. If we know our purpose then our vocation, relationships, and life all have meaning and therefore become clearer.
In a New York Times article I read (I can’t remember which one, but I kept this quote from the opinin piece article), “Every reflective person sooner or later faces certain questions: What is the purpose of my life? How do I find a moral compass so I can tell right from wrong? What should I do day by day to feel fulfillment and deep joy?”
Christians would argue that we are designed to find our purpose. And, that we are deeply embeded with the need to worship God in all we do. Additionally, Christians would say that sin has corrupted this understanding of purpose. Unfortunately, unless we have God’s help, we are doomed to never live our true unfettered purpose. If these assertions are true, then what difference does it make?
