  • In the university of life, some courses are required of us.  Some we may choose, but others are required.

    Life itself is a required course in which we have no say. We did not choose to be born, but now that we are here, we can do nothing about it. We have to live. There is no escaping. You cannot destroy yourself. Life does not end at death. The story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 proves this. You had a beginning, but there is no ending. You must exist somewhere from now on.
