'What do you want from life?'

I recently came across an amusing yet thought-provoking story. A teenage girl was at home one evening, doing her homework. The girl had enlisted her dad to help her, and as they were focussing on a particular problem, the girl received a rather unexpected text message from her mum, which read, "What do you want from life?"

Both the girl and her dad were rather taken aback by the question, and they spent some time thinking about how they might answer. Ideas such as wealth, fulfilment, fame, love and several others came to mind. After some time, they were interrupted by a further text from the girl's mother explaining that her phone's predictive text had automatically corrected the word "Lidl"!

I'm sure that the whole family had a good laugh about the incident, but the question "What do you want from life?" is a profound one, and perhaps something which we could all do to consider. It's easy to drift along in life without making any attempt to focus on what is really important.

Many years ago, I was captivated by the words of Jesus, 'I have come that you might have life, and have it to the full.' So, what do you want from life?
