Purpose of life is love.
February 3, 2019
If you accomplish many things and have not loved, your life is vanity. If you accomplish little of a material nature and yet respond to the world with love, then your life achieves its purpose. It achieves God’s purpose for you.
The objective in life, therefore, is in the growth of love, its use and its acceptance. We emphasize the acceptance of love, for too often one hears the continual refrain that love is to be given, and that is true. But if it is to be given, it must be received. If another offers you love, you must ultimately receive it. God’s grace in living human life is seen both in the capacity to give love and in the humility of receiving it.
