The Purpose of Life

  • The purpose of life is the fulfillment of the law of God, not the acquisition of ever more knowledge. (Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom, 27 July)
  • If Christians would follow the law, there would be no rich and no poor. (Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom, 31 July)

Grant me, O God, ears to hear and eyes to see the wonder of Your presence ... [in this new year] in the ordinary places of my life. (Jeff Japinga, Daily Guideposts - 2007, 22 December)
