Capsule for Day
What is truly a good life? Is it a life that has everything one needs or expects to have? Is it a life that we get to do what we want, when we want, and in the way and manner we want? What is a good life? I wonder and question. Could it be a life without strife, trouble, anxiety, pain?
I guess we can go on trying to figure out what is truly a good life. The temptation for many of us is to settle for what the media defines as a good life... have fun... go on the best holiday trip... be free of religion in any form and shape... be your own man, your own woman, and be the best.
While there is truth in the foregoing, there is also deception. For a good life isn't just about having, it is also about giving. It isn't just about doing stuff, it is also about being. It isn't just about trouble-free, but also freeing ourselves through our troubles. It is the "presence" of true worship - God.
