The meaning of life is to know, love, and serve God (Jn 17:3; Sir 1:11-12; Catechism 356, 357, 1721). This is where we will find our fulfillment here on earth and in heaven. Love is the underlying theme throughout the Bible (1 Jn 4:8; Jn 3:16). In fact, there are more than six hundred verses in Scripture that speak explicitly of love. To begin, the creation of human beings was an act of unselfish love by God. He did not need to because He is perfect and needs nothing. But He created us because He knew we would like it. This was an act of love. God exhibited the ultimate act of love when He gave His only Son as the definitive sacrifice to save the world from its sins (Jn 3:16). The Son, Jesus Christ, gave His own life for us when He died on the cross. We are called to this type of unselfish love. Love is most fully expressed when we give ourselves with no interest in gaining something from it. Love is wanting what is best for another simply because it is best for that person! Love is the greatest of virtues. Love is the opposite of selfishness. Love truly makes the world a better place. Without love, we have only emptiness. (My answer continues in the comments)
We live because life is worth living. It is only in this life that you get to experience the best days of your life. You also have to live for people who love you and ones who want to see you succeed someday.
Dya know what - I wonder the same, we work hard all our lives trying to succeed and shit when really its all pointless we all die- what's the point in anything we do when anybody that is able to apreciate it will die eventually anyway. No one will even remember us in 100 years time
Actually, you are not living your life for YOU. As redundant as it may sound, you live your life to influence other ppl. Life is about interactions & decisions. Every time you meet a new person is a chance meeting that could change yours or their lives forever. We all choose our own refined lifestyles & friends, and the choices we make seemingly alter the lives of others or even those not even born yet . We live to influence the lives of those we care about. It's not about you as you would think because other lives evolve around us.
The purpose of our life rests in our usefulness. We live to be useful in every unique little way we can. We live so as to make humanity greater & grander in our collective efforts. We live so we can happily leave knowing that our endeavors - no matter how little or large - made this world a better place. We live to be the torch bearers of advancements so that our children won't have to be afraid of darkness. We live to sow the seeds of human greatness for our children to reap the fruit of greatness. Our lives today ought to guide the glory of a better tomorrow.
