As we set out in the world we are encouraged to seek the prizes of the world:
Fame, wealth, prestige, possessions, pleasure, achievement.....
But when we get these things we find that they are empty boxes.
There is no real satisfaction in them.
This is not the true purpose of life.
The cause and the purpose of life is love.
It is in love that we find true satisfaction.
To be loved is good but to love is even better.
And love is its own reward.
Love is intimately associated with God.
And God is the author and sustainer of life.
God is the Beloved.
And His purpose is Love.
