What Are People Made For?
At the core of the purpose of humanity is love. God made people so that He could love them, and they could enjoy Him and love Him back. It is important that we understand this truth first and foremost, so that our talk about purpose does not become a means to earn God’s approval, where we see our value and identity tied to how well we perform our function. We were made so that God could love us and we could love Him back. When this is at the base of our understanding of our purpose, then we are able to pursue whatever other secondary calling or purpose there might be with freedom and joy, as an expression of God’s grace.
