WE SERVE THE LORD FOR NO REWARD
I do not believe that God created us to serve Him, for what could we give God that He can’t provide for himself? Nor are we here to merit an afterlife of reward or punishment as a Being that exist outside of space/time doesn’t need to wait around for the end of our lives to know how we might fare. In fact, God knew exactly how we would turn out before He created us and He did it anyway. We are here simply to learn how to be loving and wise. To do this we must discover the nature of the Being that created us and recreate ourselves in His image. We are made in the image of a giver. When we are giving, we teach ourselves who and what we are.
