Is making money all there is to life?

Have you ever felt like all you did was work and sleep? The endless treadmill of society keeps us running and rarely lets us rest. Bills need to be paid and appointments need to be met. Is that all there is to life? Or is there some purpose for living?

I believe that we were created by a God who loves us. With that preface, we should not live only for ourselves. Our purpose in life is to glorify our Creator. To do that, we need to live as an example of what God can do for someone. We need to point people to the promise of heaven. Ultimately, we need to lead people to love the God that we have come to know and love.

Some will say that there is no God or Creator, but how can they explain the complexity and beauty in nature. There is no way everything could have evolved from nothing. If you think about it, that belief just doesn't make sense. There has to be a God in control of everything. I believe that those who say otherwise don't want God to exist because they look at God as having so many restrictions and rules. God loves you and wants you to tell others that He loves them.

So, is making money all there is to life? I don't believe so.
