Quote of the Week

"The ideal human existence is not eternal leisure or an endless vacation - or even a monastic retreat into prayer and meditation - but creative effort expended for the glory of God and the benefit of others."

I agree partly with that. However the creative effort expended should be for mankind and the environment, not for some invisible, impossible friend in the sky.

@Maalie - Creative energy is most meaningfully spent when it is directed to God. It is transformed into worship which is our highest calling.

@OldGeezer - thanks for stopping by.
