What are you living for?


The question is, What are you living for?

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Let me share this story with you concerning purpose:

From the SeattleTimes, A college fraternity invited a favorite professor for an evening meal and then a discussion. During the discussion, the professor turned to the student and asked, “What are you living for, young man?”” The student replied, “I am going to be an electrical engineer.” “Yes,” replied the professor, “I understand that’s going to be your profession but what are you living for?” The young man was thoughtful and apparently baffled by the question. Finally he said, “I am sorry, sir, but I guess I haven’t thought that one through.”

That’s my question for you today as well… What are you living for?
