What is the meaning of life?
23 Dec 06
I think life is gifted for us to achieve something.. Everyone has a meaning for being born.. i guess we are here to help others in need and also achieve something for oneself.. tats the fact.. we might not know the reason for our birth, but we have to believe that someone or the other is benefited cuz of us and we do need others to help us in need at times..

Okay!!! tatz not ma conclusion.. Anywayz, i will try to xplain u what i thik!!.. Am sure tat if we have no reason for our birth, we wouldn't posses all humanitarian and emotional qualities like love,kindness,affection,jealousy,possessiveness,helping tendency,tackling mind, 6th sense, etc.. Now, from all that i have mentioned.., only human being have the sense of reasoning, and tats y u ask me the reason for birth.. similarly, humans only have 6th sense without which they would merely be animals.. ?Y do u think tat we have been provided with this so called 6th sense? itz cuz, only we can differentiate between good and evil.. right? so only we can decide how to make life happy.. and thatz the reason why we dont want to think,"Ahh.. we have born, so we have to survive".. but, either way, we take life and its struggles sportive and we still face it.. tats y am sayin," we are born to live and not jus live as v are born!!" hope u got me correct.. expecting yr reply..

I am a Christian and I think your account is good but not complete. I think God established humanity on earth to love other people, that is why we were made. It is because it is conforming to the purpose established by God (loving people) that we are effectually loving God by doing what is pleasing to Him ,seeing His creation act in conformation with His desired intent of their being.

Its all about love actually. Love is the fufillment of the law. With love, we love God with all our heart, might, soul, and we love our neighbor as ourselves. Love overcomes everything. With love, you would not steal, lie, cheat, covet, murder and etc. against people. And with love, you will love God above all things. We are still in the flesh and we make a lot of mistakes in this lifetime. We have to accept that we are not perfect and we need God everytime to strengthen us and to encourage us. With all the mistakes we've made, we can ask for God's forgiveness and He is faithful to forgive us as long as we forgive others all the bad things they have done to us. It is difficult sometimes, but we have to overcome it.
