Building A Life of PURPOSE
(Ecclesiastes 1) If you were to look for a verse in the bible for a definition of a great life, you would have to look at Acts 13:36: "David served God's purpose in his generation." I don't know a better epitaph to have on a tombstone than to say you served God's purpose in your generation. That to me is the essence of a great life.
"He served God's purpose..."
There's a book in the Bible written just for this purpose. It's called the book of Ecclesiastes. It's written by a guy named Solomon who was the wisest man who ever lived. He said this is what happens when you don't know the meaning of life. Particularly in Ecclesiastes 1 he says if you don't know the purpose of life there are five tragic consequences that are going to happen in your own life.
