Love is the Meaning of Life — Dallas Willard

Love reveals the meaning of life

We have never known a person genuinely devoted to serving God and others from an agape-centered worldview to have a problem discerning the “meaning of life.” To love God with divine love is to be constantly seeking to do, and be involved in, what is good, to and for God, which is also to be simultaneously committed to the good of our “neighbors.” This is why each of the Ten Commandments conveys key relational dynamics that provide common benefits to the individual as well as the community. This becomes more obvious when Jesus teaches that the internalization of these laws or ways sets us free to live life at its fullest (Matt. 5–7). This comes when the ways of God are written, or imprinted, on the heart, the motivational centerpiece of human life.
