I’m my own man! I’m self-made, and I alone should determine my destiny! I will let nothing stand in the way of what I want. There is no other road to happiness!
At least that’s what contemporary society would have us believe.
But the Christian viewpoint is much different. Not in the end – we were certainly created to be happy – but in the means. We were created to be happy with God – and God has an idea of what we need to do to attain that happiness with Him!
What that means, essentially, is that we can’t be the ultimate self-determining men society calls us to be. We have to allow ourselves to be re-created by God for His purpose. Only in doing so will we be able to find the happiness which God has planned for us.BACK TO LIST
