I'll say that the good side of the world today is the blooming creativity of the world produced in various ways. We also have a lot of discoveries that helps life easier than the life before in ancient times. We are all progressing in the area of creativity, technology, academics, work, and so on and so forth. But have you ever looked at the bad side or the decaying side of the world today? Have you ever thought if your purpose and goal in life is part of the good side today? We are all busy with the earthly things and work today that we are slowly forgetting the real goal we must achieve.

We have forgotten that character is of more value than beauty and fame, wisdom than riches and splendor, and a heart and soul dedicated to God than all the earthly riches combined. Parents, have you forgotten that the best inheritance you could ever give to your children is the Godly legacy? Children have you forgotten that to enjoy long life we must honor and obey our parents? Are we forgetting why we are living for? We live not for any earthly goals and achievements but for the eternal destination at the end of the race before us. Were we so focused on the stalls along the way and have forgotten that we are on the race? Wake up, and get into your senses! Know the real reason why we are living here. Think deeper and remember that everything that has a beginning also has an ending. And if we, humans, began living and breathing when we were babies, we also have endings. But aren't you curious what will happen to us when our life ends? 

Why are you doing what you are doing? What is your purpose in life?
See? When you try to set earthly achievements as your goals, in the end you will go back to the question, what will happen when my life ends? Will I go somewhere when everything ends? What should be my goal in life?

Hebrews 12:1-3
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."


As i said in the previous chapter, (http://ancient-modern.weebly.com/4/post/2013/05/technology-the-discovery-that-is-used-everyday.html), let us fix our eyes on Jesus and set our goals to the prize that will last and will not rot. 

Question, what is this prize? The trophy that you will receive from God on the judgement day for finishing the race He has set before us. But of course we must first know where this awarding will happen to go and receive the prize; the location will be on God's Kingdom, Heaven. And to go to Heaven, one must admit that He is a sinner and accept Jesus as his personal lord and savior to enter his heart. Then after you receive the "ticket" to go to Heaven, you shall then produce good merits and receive these awards in heaven. Setting aside the rewards, the best goal ,one could set, is to please the Author of your story and live up the story he has written for you. Just as God has freely given His life to save us from our sins, without any payment from us, so we can also freely give surrender our lives that to Him that saved us.


Going back to the main topic of this article, I want the world's good side today, to be known on people's personal decision to set their purpose and goals in life to the ultimate and eternal goal. 


I want to end with this question, "Will your purpose and goals in life be part of the good side of the world today?"
