What is the Purpose of Human Life?

When asked what was the greatest commandment, Jesus said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, 'you shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets." (Matthew 22:37-40)

If God created the universe for the sole purpose of housing humans, why would He have done this? Jesus said that God created humans for the purpose of loving Him and each other. In creating humans, God gave them complete freedom within the limits of their dimensionality. This freedom was required to permit humans to express love. However, a byproduct of freedom can be the opposite of love. The sin of fellow humans is responsible for the majority of misery experienced by humans in this life.
