Why did God make you? Why did God make me?
God made you, to know Him, to love Him, to serve Him, to be happy with Him in this world and the next. Unless we begin to love God in this life, there is no way in which we can be united in happiness with God in eternity. On the other hand, we cannot love someone we do not know. Yet again it is hard to serve one we do not know and love out of our own free will. Therefore as a first step, we must learn all that we can about God, so that we may love Him; and not just love Him but keep our love alive and grow in love for Him through doing things that please Him.
