Before we decide the purpose we need to know how we came to this earth. We did not come to this earth by our own wish. It is God who send us this world. So the purpose of a man should be the purpose of God the creator.
Our creator want us lead loving, caring, truthful and righteous life while having fellowship with Him(God).
Hope you will lead a purposful life.
