Of everything G‑d created in His world, not one thing was created without purpose. —Talmud, Shabbat 77b

For every being, there is a world, different from the world of every other being. For what is a world? It is those things of which any single being is aware.

So that whether it be a human being like yourself, a cow on a farm or a leaf on a tree, it knows only of its Creator, itself, and whatever is essential to its purpose. And that is its world.

And in the world of each one of us, all that exists and all that occurs is that which is essential for us to complete our purpose—to fix up this world.

For G‑d does not create anything without purpose.

Reshimot, no. 44.

OK so if everything was created for a purpose includung every human what 'purpose' was there in creating 6 million babies & children to die last year from starvation and lack of medical care etc.
Oh I get it G-d acts in mysterious ways OR humans could fix this problem if they wanted to. In other words G-d gave man the utensils to save those children if they wanted to. Reply

Change Your World If everybody gradually changed their attention from self-love to others, then each would see a new world.

Sometimes, even together with doing good, one wonders what ones real purpose is.
Is it only doing good? Is that really enough? And if one is not satisfied, even though he is a "do-gooder", what does he do? Reply
