An unrevealed purpose leads humanity to chase fleeting and temporal pleasures as a substitute for God’s intentions and revealed plans. No amount of worldly consumption and praise can give peace or eradicate humankind’s innate drive towards God, its creator.
The world is filled with brokenness and too many unrealized dreams. Nations are consumed with war and rumors of war. Too many individuals are burdened with excessive poverty and disease. Racial and ethnic conflicts polarize societies. Still, others are trapped by unconstrained moral conflicts, various forms of addiction, consumerism, power grabs, and religious strife. All of these things above are futile attempts at gaining a relationship, purpose, and meaning from life. They are a result of humanity, not knowing God and God’s purpose for their lives.
For people to find peace, purpose, and fulfillment in life, it must come through communing with God and living according to God’s Word, rules, and principles. God seeks to be reconciled with what He created. God is always available to His creation if sought. It is one’s pursuit and obedience to God’s will after many meaningless activities and disappointments that will reestablish one to their original and intended purpose.
