This morning I find myself too exhausted to write a coherent post, and waaaay behind on email (as usual). After taking some time to whine to myself about it for a while, it occurred to me: I could have my brilliant readers help me go through my inbox!
Here’s a question someone emailed me that I haven’t had a chance to reply to yet. I should note that she included a big disclaimer that she doesn’t mean for this to sound rude or disrespectful or insensitive or anything like that, she just wasn’t sure how else to ask the question:
In a recent post you bring up “the purpose of life” — something I just feel is true. I do not disagree with you on that, I just don’t understand why that is. Why would God create humans for the sole purpose of knowing, loving, and serving him? Why would any creature, great or small do such a thing other than out of narcissism or loneliness? Why does God need us to know, love, and serve him?
It’s a good question, and I was having a hard time articulating the answer off the top of my head. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
