The Most Important Question

What’s the first question you were asked when you graduated from high school? We’ll bet money it wasn’t, “So, who are you going to become?” Are you kidding? It was, “So, what are you going to do now?” Although it’s a fine question, performance immediately becomes the topic of conversation, reinforcing our behavior to please externally rather than be aware of our internal self. As a result of this mind-set, a lot of people in their twenties have no idea of their gifts and abilities, spiritual or otherwise. They might have a well-documented résumé but not be able to answer questions such as, “What are your strengths and weaknesses?”

Listening to Your Life

Listening to your life involves connecting with God, yourself, and the people you encounter to get directions for finding and staying on your path. It is about being curious enough and honest enough to answer the important questions that will enable you to grow.
