Jesus Christ is the source–the only source–of meaning in life. He provides the only satisfactory explanation for why we’re here and where we’re going. Because of this good news, the final heartbeat for the Christian is not the mysterious conclusion to a meaningless existence. It is, rather, the grand beginning to a life that will never end. That same Lord is waiting to embrace and forgive anyone who comes to Him in humility and repentance. He is calling your name, just as He called the name of Pete Maravich. His promise of eternal life offers the only hope for humanity. If you have never met this Jesus, I suggest that you seek spiritual counsel from a Christian leader who can offer guidance. You can also write to me, if that would help. Thanks for reading along with me. I hope to meet you someday. If our paths don’t cross this side of heaven, I’ll be looking for you in that eternal city. By all means, Be there!. James C. Dobson
About This Quote

Being a human being is all about being alive. We are what we are because of our existence. Being alive means being in need of life, which means needing meaning, which means needing something to give meaning to the world. Everyone has a purpose, but not everyone can find it.

The person who can find their purpose in life is the one who has fulfilled their purpose in that moment. If you have found your purpose in life, then you have everything that you need to be happy and everything that you need to accomplish your goals.
