If the purpose of life was to do what YOU wish to do i.e go to school, get an education, get a job, get married, have children and then die…life would be a tragedy. There would be no purpose. It would be meaningless as we would merely exist and not have LIFE. The purpose of life is to get to know your Creator and to prepare yourself for an eternal home…at some point in a person’s life – everyone would ask this question – what is the purpose of life. Why are we here. Search for the truth – ask the Creator in sincerity (not merely to get head knowledge) and He will reveal the purpose to you. ..
