The Purpose of Life is not to Live Old in Wealth and Good Health. Here is the Purpose of Life

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: For this is the whole duty of man. (Ecclesiastic 12:13 KJV).

Wealth is good and longevity is divine but wealth and longevity without fulfilling purpose is equals to a wasted life. It is better to be dead and know no life, than to be alive and don't know why. Someone who died young but fulfilled purpose will be happier, than someone who live old and don't know his reason for living.

The purpose of life is to Fear God and keep His commandments; amazingly, the Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. How do you fear God? By keeping His commandments. Jesus said, if you love Me, keep my commandment. How do you keep God commandment?

1) Total surrendering: "Jesus said unto them, you shall Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind"(Matthew 22:37). What that means is to live in Holiness, without which no man shall see God. Holy Living is your reasonable service to God. (Romans 12:1). If you like be a devoted member of a church/ an active member of a department. Pay 50% of your income as tithe. The way to fear God is to keep your complete body in Purity for Him.

2) Love for humanity: Jesus says; And the second, like it, is this: you shall love your neighbor as yourself, there is no other commandment greater than these" (Mark 12:31). To fear God is to help the less privileged; the story of the good Samaritan illustrated that (Luke 10:29-37). Samuel told Saul: To obey is better than sacrifice; So, if you want to give to God, you do that by helping the poor, and when God wants to blessing you, He does that through the rich. God is the source and men are His channel of blessing. Let me surprise you; The judgment of the saint (sinners already stand condemned for not accepting Jesus) will be based on obedient ( their giving to the poor; Matthew 25:31-46).

In conclusion; Life is measured by impartation. Until you start imparting Lives, you have not started fulfilling purpose.
