God Gives Meaning To Life

When I hear the word “religion”, God comes to my mind very quick. Many people find religion very controversial sometimes because they don’t believe in God or don’t want to hear about him. For many people and philosophers God gives no meaning to life and for others God does give meaning. Personally God gives a lot of meaning to my life and helps me with my daily life. For some people God is very important and others know about God but have no interest whatsoever. God gives meaning to life in many ways and for those who do not believe in him there will be a point in their life where they will start to believe and have questions about God.

God is happiness. Many people decide to find happiness in things that are not worth it. People strive for happiness in money, or drugs, sure they find happiness for a certain time but then it goes away. There is many rich people in this world and have it all but happiness, they are not satisfied with all they have and the reason is God. If God is not in the life of one’s life then the happiness they have is only for short period of time. But when you have God in your life everything is different, there are things that want to be accomplished and the person has a goal in mind which is to live life as if it was the last day, happy and with God in the heart.

He gives advice of how my life should be. He gives me free will to choose whether to obey him or not. But I also know that if I obey him is because I love him. He tells me to love my enemies and to have patience, to listen before I talk and to treat others as I want to be treated. God tells me what is good for me to eat and what not to eat, how I should dress and how not to dress, how to talk and how not to talk. God tells me every single thing the only thing is that I have to put it into practice. This is how God gives meaning to my life, he directs me through the right path.
