Where Are We Going?

Men should strive to learn before they die what they are running from, and to who, and why. (James Thurber, late American humorist)

In the hurry and scurry of modern life, it may sometimes seem that we are either running from something or to something. Without knowing what those somethings are, life can be confusing and unsatisfying. Slowing down seems impossible but if we could determine the goal we’re striving for, we no doubt could move forward deliberately and confidently.

Let love be your highest goal! (1 Corinthians 4:1) . . . our goal is to please him (2 Corinthians 5:9). Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God (Galatians 1:10).
