Living: purposeful?

Is there any purpose to life or is everything ultimately meaningless?




Our Response

We agree with this wonderful exchange in the Westminster Shorter Catechism:
Q: “What is the chief end of man?
A: “Man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.”

We find that this realization frees us from our culture’s obsession with money and power and status. Instead we pursue achievements in order to honor God. While forgetting ourselves, we find that our deepest desires are met.
