We are in the midst of graduation season. It's the time of year we ask students questions like, "What do you want to do when you grow up? What do you plan to major in?" When we ask these kinds of questions, aren't we in essence asking, "What's your purpose in life?" Whether you are a student or not I would like to ask you, "What is your purpose in life?"

Rick Warren has had a runaway hit with "A Purpose Driven Life." I also read a couple of different suggestions for what our purpose is:

The Westminster Catechism sums it up well when it says the “chief end of man” is to “glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.”


The purpose of our lives is to let others see what God is like as they watch and experience His love through us.

I really like that second one, to reflect God's love to all the world. We are called to be mirrors. What a remarkable notion. So what would YOU say is your purpose in life?
