Our Purpose

Having a purpose in life is important. It contributes to health and to society as a whole. Unfortunately, many are looking for that purpose is all the wrong places, and many feel they have no purpose at all. This quote written by Arthur Crawshay Alliston Hall (April 12, 1847 – February 26, 1930), a bishop of Vermont in the Episcopal Church, should be comforting and inspiring to each of us. God is at work in our lives, and there is a reason for our existence.

“God has a purpose for each one of us, a work for each to do, a place for each one to fill, an influence for each one to exert, a likeness to His dear Son for each to manifest, and then, a place for each one to fill in His holy Temple.

If you still have doubts about your purpose, read God’s Holy Word:

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
