What is the meaning of life?
The question of the meaning of life may be asked in many ways, such as Why are we here? or Does my life have a purpose? The Scriptures show that our purpose in life is to build a friendship with God. Consider some of these fundamental truths that the Scriptures reveal
We fill our spiritual need by building a friendship with God. Although the idea of being God’s friend might seem far-fetched to some, the Bible gives us this encouragement: “Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you.”—James 4:8; 2:23.
To become God’s friend, we must live in harmony with his purpose for us. The Bible states this purpose at Ecclesiastes 12:13: “Have reverence for God, and obey his commands, because this is all that we were created for.”—Good News Translation.
