What is Earth; this place we were born onto? Why are we here? What is the purpose of this life? We are born, grow up, get a job, have a family and then finally we die. What could it all mean? Is that all we are meant to have? Live and then eventually die? Where do we go, or what happens after we die?
A lot is being hidden from us, right from the very moment we are born, the educational system and society start to teach us all the wrong things. Our lives have a much higher purpose than making some few dollars and making a family. There is a Creator. The One who created the earth on which we live, we were purposely created, for a very specific reason.
There is so much going on beyond what meets the eye, a spiritual struggle for our very souls, a battle between good and evil. Our lives on this earth is more to fulfil a spiritual purpose than a physical one. But I guess that’s what the devil tries to hide from us, so we are bombarded everyday by the things of this physical world; bills to settle, illnesses, people are even worried sick about their social media status…how many followers they have and what not. Sad. Loving temporal things is only a distraction from understanding what life is really about. Because as soon as we begin to understand the meaning of life, a lot of things become clearer to us and we won’t want to live our lives anyhow. So the devil being as cunning as he is, would do everything in his power to distract and blind us from the truth.
Let us set our eyes on the higher spiritual things, everything else we see around us is vain and would pass away. And all that we do on this earth, we would account for. The Creator, Jehovah, would judge us one day for the kind of life we lived here on earth. When we live in Him and He in us, He gives us the calmness and peace of heart to live through the chaos surrounding us. He sets our souls at peace.
When it’s all said and done, it comes down to one single thing:
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” – Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJV
