STOP AND THINK – All paths lead to the same goal: to convey to others what we are. (Pablo Neruda, Chilean Nobel Prize winner for Literature)

It is true that what we are is more important than what we do. We need not only to see our activity but to understand what motivates us—what we really are inside. But surely, there is more to life’s purpose than merely to know one another’s true character. A higher goal is to know the true character of our Creator, to accept His grace, and to prepare to meet Him.

So we make it our goal to please [God], whether we are at home in the body [alive] or away from it [dead]. (2 Corinthians 5:9)
