The purpose of the Earth and Men - what this world is essentially for - is the creation of relationships. And this is vital because only on Earth and among Men can Beings learn to love.
I return to this passage again for two reasons:
First, it is a reminder that God created this world as fit-for-purpose. Moreover, He offered us mortal life in it to serve a positive purpose.
Second, it suggests that our experience in this world – despite its inherent temporariness, tribulations, temptations, and trials – is a great gift.
Also, during the brief time we have in this world, we have the opportunity to accept, participate in, and expand this great gift – despite everything.
More correctly, precisely because of everything!
If we accept, participate in and expand the great gift in this world, then we will learn how to love. Once we have learned how to love, our purpose in this world will be fulfilled, and we be offered the choice to leave all temporariness, tribulation, and temptation behind.
So be of good cheer and stop treating the world with nothing but resentment, scorn, and contempt!
Satan had nothing but resentment, scorn, and contempt for God and Creation. He is now the Prince of this World -- but only of the part that refuses to learn how to love.
Once we commit to learning to love, we overcome the disgust and anger the Prince's world generates in us and align ourselves with God's divine creative purposes in this world.
So, create those relationships. That's what you're here for! And when you have created relationships, focus on co-creating love.
Learn from the love that is cultivated. Strive to create more of it; then make it eternal.
