Real Success in Life

Do you know your purpose in life? Surely, you know that the one who created you had a specific purpose for your life. Knowing that very purpose is the key to real success in life. 

Your purpose is summarized in one simple word. That word is love. That's the purpose of your life and every life because your Creator is love. God is love. He made you to love and be loved. Therefore, your life is about relationships, because love can only be fulfilled in relationship with others.

God made you because he wants to love you, and he wants you to love him, as well as others. Life is receiving and giving love. You receive God's love that you may share God's love. "We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in him" (1 John 4:16, NLT).

Your life has great potential. It can only be reached as you accept the love of God, that you may love God and others. Without such loving relationships, this life becomes meaningless. "But if I didn't love others, I would be of no value whatsoever" (1 Corinthians 13:3, NLT).

Your need is to be loved. Your purpose is to love God and others. "God is love" (1 John 4:8). He made you to love you, that you may love Him and others. That's real success in life.
