Our problem is not so much that our life is meaningless as our suffering is meaningless.
All human beings suffer.
And it is our suffering that vexes us.
Some blame God for allowing suffering.
Others make of it a virtue.
And while it is true that suffering can teach us to be compassionate it is not God's will that we suffer.
In my experience all of God's efforts are to alleviate suffering.
To bring us to a state of equilibrium, even happiness.
But life is not meaningless.
Our suffering is caused by human ignorance and fear enacted through free will.
But the meaning and purpose of life is Love.
