The catechism teaches us that our purpose, our chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. It’s worth noting the catechism points to our chief end. It’s saying our ultimate purpose is to glorify God. There are many things in life we must do, we have many purposes, many ends – yet the chief end. In other words, everything in life, everything we do, be it caring for children or an elderly parent, be it sweeping the streets or running the country and everything in between, the point of it all, is that we would glorify God.
