I heard a story about a young man who learned a vital lesson in seminary.  It happened in Greek class.  There were two blackboards in the room, and the instructor had written a different set of questions on each board.  He explained to the class that he must be gone from the room during the test and told them which set of questions they were to answer.  The other set of questions was for the next class.  This young man arrived late, missed the explanation, answered every question perfectly, and failed the test.  He   answered the wrong set of questions. 

At first the young man was very unhappy but confused that he had learned a vital lesson: It is not enough to know the right answers; we must also ask the right questions.  You can have the right answers to a lot of questions and still fail the test of life.  Where can I make the most money?  That question is not unimportant, but neither is it the ultimate question.  A lot of people have answered it perfectly and yet have miserably failed the test of life.  How can I have the most fun?  There is    nothing wrong with having fun.  In fact, to live without enjoyment is probably as pagan as worshipping idols.  But the people who major in fun, who seek it above everything else usually fail the test of life.

We should stay with the major issues; we should ask the big questions.  Who am I?  Why am I here?  Where am I going?  Those are the big issues.  Those are the major questions.  Ask them       sincerely; answer them honestly; and you will be on your way to something worthwhile with your life.     

So, take some time from your busy schedule to think, to reflect, to read, to learn, and to pray more.  God is much wiser than any of us.  He knows the story of life from the beginning to the end.  Life is a mystery.  If we take the time to think, to reflect, to read, to learn and to pray God will help us to be wiser and happier in life.
