Purpose As a Decisive Determinant of Potential Variables

The importance of purpose as a determinant of potential variables is a concept that is taken for granted.  It is so much a part of our everyday lives that we sometimes fail to celebrate its significance.  That there can be a large variety of similar things (cars, for example) yet whose particular function is entirely dependent  upon specific purpose (going on a family vacation vs. going to work) reveals one of the distinct roles of mankind.  The principle task of man is to introduce purpose on earth or to identify it in the workings of God.  It is thus that man is made in the image of God.  Creating purpose is a constant delight.  It is man’s principle occupation and vocation and distinguishes him as unique among the many species.  For this reason, nearly everything he touches does double duty as a symbol.
