Purpose And Meaning

Purpose And Meaning

By Chance, Chancellorfiles

Chance: I’ve been reflecting on my life recently, and I realize that it must have a purpose and meaning. Life is almost irrelevant if there is no purpose and meaning in your life. No matter how insignificant you feel your life is always seek a purpose – and find a meaning to participate in that purpose. It could be just simply volunteering your time to a cause or doing something that you enjoy.

What ever you do in life make sure there is a meaning in behind the purpose. You can have a purpose but no meaning. Example you work a job you don’t like so there is a purpose but no meaning to the job. You work a job for a living but the meaning behind the purpose is not one that you like. You work it so you will have food, a place to live, money, etc. The meaning that motivates you to work that job is not a meaning that you prefer; you prefer to do something in your life that has a meaning that motivates you personally.

Working the job motivates the company you work for but it may not motivate you. So find your place in life by finding a purpose that you like and find the meaning that is behind that purpose. It must be a purpose that has a personal meaning to you. No matter what you do you must find a meaning behind the purpose you choose in life. Your purpose is your destiny, now only you can discover your destiny in life.

And when you have discovered your destiny (purpose) then you will find the meaning in behind it. Anyone can have purpose but purpose does not guarantee meaning. So find what your destiny in life is and discover the meaning behind it. A person may become a teacher at a particular school and that teacher enjoys teaching. Teaching was the purpose (destiny) and the meaning was to help children learn. When you find your purpose you will understand the meaning, the meaning is what ever you are to accomplish by participating in your purpose.

And, when you have found your purpose in life you will have found meaning for doing that purpose because you will be happy and content. It is the meaning that makes you content and happy not the purpose. Your real purpose in life will always have meaning behind it because you will feel happy and joyful on the inside.
Life is a stage so find your place.

This has been a moment with Your Chancellor Chance

    Hey Chance: Good article. I have been trying to figure out-or rather focus on my purpose(s) in life. I couldn’t find your email addy in my box so I will post here. First, I think you should not censor yourself on my site anymore. Although I might disagree with you on some stuff, you have always supported me and I don’t like it whenyou hold your toungue!!!

    Secondly, you know how much it hurts to be called a race traitor; even if the person doing the name calling is a third rate loser. That is it. Enjoy your day and thanks for brightening up mine:)

    Good to hear from you Mahndisa and yes it can be painful to hear someone call you a race traitor. Many times these people are hurting on the inside also. And this is why they call you a race traitor they have had encounters with people from another race that was unpleasant. So they take their anger out on members of their own racial group.

    Take care, Mahndisa

    It is important to know whether or not life has a purpose. However, many have lived out their lives without giving the matter much thought.

    If life does have meaning, surely we should try to discover what it is. Otherwise, we could miss out on the whole point of the wonderful adventure of living. It would be like walking through an art gallery without looking at the pictures or sitting in a restaurant without ordering a meal.

    Imagine that you are visiting a friend’s workshop. He has just finished a project, and you are fascinated by it. The object is beautifully made and intriguingly shaped. But try as you may, you cannot determine what it is for. How do you find out? Why, you simply ask your friend, and he will likely be happy to tell you.

    So how can we find out the purpose of life? Well, why not ask God, “the source of life”? (Psalm 36:9) How can you do that? Happily, he has spoken to us through the Bible. He has had individuals of faith write down his thoughts in a way that we can understand. Actually, the purpose of life can be expressed in just a few words: We are here to learn about God and to do his will. The Bible says: “The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments. For this is the whole obligation of man.”—Ecclesiastes 12:13.

    Does that seem too simple? Well, it is not. Our being here to learn about God and to do his will has wonderful and profound implications.

    To benefit personally from the fulfillment of God’s grand purpose for the earth, we must first get to know God. Jesus Christ said: “This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.” (John 17:3) How can we do that? We learn some things about God by observing the world around us, the creation, including the starry heavens. (Psalm 19:1) Especially, though, do we learn about God—as well as about his Son, Jesus Christ—through the Bible. We learn his name and his qualities, and we find out in detail what God has done for mankind. Such knowledge makes us love him and draws us very close to him and to his Son.

    Getting to know God makes us want to do his will. Perhaps we have prayed as Jesus instructed: “Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.” (Matthew 6:10) The real purpose of life—the one that brings true satisfaction—is living our lives in harmony with that will of God.

    Doing God’s will also includes developing a godly personality. So we identify the things God hates—such as lying, theft, harmful gossip, uncontrolled anger—and we reject them. We also study the qualities that God loves—such as love, joy, peace, kindness, and goodness—and we cultivate them with the help of God’s holy spirit. (Galatians 5:19-24) If we are to gain eternal life, we need to be the kind of people that God will want to have around for all eternity. Indeed, learning about God and doing his will gives purpose and meaning to our lives as nothing else can!

  4. Yes, indeed well put Ht, you have spoken swell and well I enjoy the way you use scripture to show your poin of view. You are so confident in your expressions on a particualr topic and I like that HT, what a good quality to have. Yes our purpose is to serve the GOD and incarnate the virtues that GOD had his prophets write in the Holy Bible. We will make mistakes but we must continue trying and making efforts, we can fall many times but we must get up. And continue moving forward gradually incarnating those virtues that God speaks of in his Holy Word (Bible).
