As believers, we are individuals driven by purpose and equipped with a unique understanding of the meaning of life.
Being followers of faith, we are imbued with a deep sense of purpose that guides our actions and choices. We recognize a greater significance to our existence, extending beyond our desires and ambitions. This awareness grants us a distinct perspective on the meaning of life.
The meaning of life is to be something other than enormously wealthy or popular. It is to be decorated with something other than awards and prestige. No. The hollow promise of prestige and societal recognition fades into insignificance when confronted with the grandeur of our sacred calling.
This life is a time for us to dedicate ourselves to God’s causes and help build His kingdom here on earth. When we do this, we obtain eternal riches. No amount of money or earthy treasure could match the worth of the prize we receive, and no prestige could compare to it.
In Matthew, we are told to “store up treasures in heaven.” The verse of Scripture reads, “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Then God’s Word reminds that “for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
These profound words, spoken by our Savior, resonate with a power that reverberates through the depths of our souls. In this cryptic revelation, we are summoned to reflect on the true essence of what we desire.
Our hearts are not meant to be shackled to the ephemeral treasures of this fleeting world. The allure of wealth, the siren call of possessions, the temporal applause of acclaim—these are but mirages that dissipate in the scorching desert of mortality.
