We need to remember what life is about and what it isn't. It's not about impressing our friends or making lots of money or outdoing the gang who graduated with us.

Life is about becoming more like Jesus daily: doing what he did, living like he lived, loving others like he loves others. This way of following Jesus is a special thing - it is the true definition of success.

Remember upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all. Alexander the Great

"The purpose of life is not to win. The purpose of life is to grow and to share. When you come to look back on all that you've done in life, you will get more satisfaction from the pleasure you have brought into other people's lives than you will from the times that you outdid them and defeated them." Rabbi Harold Kushner

Matthew 16:24
"If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me."
