The Purpose of Life!!

Share with your friends on Facebook

The purpose of life is to matter, to count, to stand for something, and to make a difference in this world we live in, even if it’s only in the life of one other person.

The question for a lot of people has to do with the meaning of life. And the purpose of life.

Beethoven once played his latest sonata for a group of his friends. The music filled the room. As the last note lingered, the friends asked Beethoven, “What does it mean?” Beethoven’s only answer was to return to the piano and play the entire sonata again. When he finished, he said to his friends. “That is what it means.”

Someone saw this sign on a subway wall: “Life is one contradiction after another.” Underneath someone else had written: “No it’s not.”

On a bulletin board someone found this cryptic message: “This life is a test. It is only a test. Had it been an actual life You would have received Further instructions on Where to go and what to do!”

Thanks to Billy D. Strayhorn for sharing.   Thanks to Pixaby for the photo. 

What do YOU think Beethoven meant when he said, “That is what it means”? 

Do YOU think life is one contradiction after another?  Do YOU think this life is a test….That it is only a test?

ALL I WANT IN LIFE IS FOR PEOPLE TO LOOK AT ME AND THINK, “WOW, THAT GAL (GUY) REALLY LOVES JESUS!!
