The Best Is Yet to Be

The Best Is Yet to Be

A young man applying for a job was asked by the personnel director, "How old are you?" He replied, "Twenty-seven." He was then asked by the director, "And what do you expect to be in three years?" With all seriousness of thought he said, "Thirty."

Some people are Iike this young man, without any expectations. They drift along in life not knowing where they are going or whether it is possible to have any personal determination over their lives. Some even think that after a certain age life is a downhill journey. They think that the early years held the great opportunities of life and, since they did not take advantage of them, it is now too late. They believe the best things in life come early if they come at all.

The Great Gift

The Great Gift

Jesus was aware of the great gift lovingly extended to humanity. "It is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom" (Lk. 12:32). Something is being offered to us—either we do not know what it is, how to recognize it, or how to receive it.

The above scripture indicates that our wise Father created the universe and the laws which govern it in a way that supports our well-being and development. Other earthly creatures experience the Father's pleasure.
