The Meaning of Life

Posted: March 19, 2015 in Uncategorized

What is most important in life?

People search for life’s meaning in many ways. Wealth. Power. Status. Possessions. As alluring as these may be, people who achieve them are seldom satisfied. Often it’s not until our later years that we fully grasp the extraordinary value of our relationships.

I am grateful to have been able to achieve much in life. Many would view me as “successful.” Yet my greatest treasures by far are my relationships—with my wonderful wife, Wendy, and our children, grandchildren and close friends—and with the Lord Jesus—a bond that is absolutely unique!

Even when we are denied the intimate relationships of marriage, family and friends, there is One who always will be, without fail, our friend. Recall His pledge: “I will never leave you or forsake you.”

By the time Billy Graham was in his 90s, he had lost his wife, Ruth, and many close acquaintances through death. But he always had a friend in Jesus. He stated, “It is the greatest discovery you will ever make: You were created to know God and be His friend forever. This is a staggering truth. Think of it. The infinite, all-powerful holy God of the universe wants to be your friend. He wants you to know Him personally.”

Take a moment now to embrace this profound reality, for in it you touch the very meaning of life: You were created to be God’s friend /////

map of gilgit baltistan

Map of Gilgit-Baltistan, showing the boundaries of six of the nine present districts and their tehsils. The boundary between the recently created Hunza-Nagar District and the now smaller Gilgit District is the same line as the northern boundary of the former Gilgit Tehsil. That tehsil appears as the southernmost division of the area shown above in light blue. Aliabad, the administrative center of the new Hunza-Nagar District, is not yet shown on this map. Note: An up-to-date map showing the boundaries of all nine of the present districts is sorely needed.
