Why Are We Here?

While reading the second chapter of a book called Finding Peace, Happiness, and Joy by Richard G. Scott, I came across this paragraph which I shared with our children in a Family Home Evening.
Remember that you are here on earth for a divine purpose. The purpose is not to be endlessly entertained or to be constantly in full pursuit of pleasure. You are here to be tried, to prove yourself so that you can receive the additional blessings God has for you.

This would be good to use as a guide to choosing priorities as we go through life. I know I need a swift kick sometimes to get up and get something of eternal importance done rather than passively surfing through endless entertainment.
