What gives meaning to life?

A flickering candle.

A question mark.Sometimes we need something to cut through the confusion, something that is solid and dependable, something that just doesn’t go out of fashion, or wears out, or becomes irrelevant.At those times we can find such reality, such strength from verses in the Bible. Here are some of those ‘Byte’ sized answers:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1″

And the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.”
Genesis 2:7

O Lord, You have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
Psalm 139:1-3,14

Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
Matthew 4:4
