The Theology of Calvin . . . and Hobbes (What’s Important in Life?)

How do we determine what’s important in life? We can vote on it, follow our whims, decide democratically. Or . . . we can realize that the very God of the universe has given us a guidebook and illustrated it profusely with real-life examples of those who valued what He values . . . or didn’t! How foolish of us not to avail ourselves of that guidebook — the B-I-B-L-E!

Time for a Great Cartoon! (worry)

Screen Shot 2014-12-14 at 8.08.21 AMHow do we determine what really matters?  We are notoriously over-concerned about minutiae and under-concerned about the deepest issues of life.  The real question is:  How do we ascertain the deepest issues of life?Screen Shot 2015-01-16 at 7.39.22 PM

For the follower of Jesus, the answer is quite simple.  God has revealed His values in His Word, the Bible.  And we don’t have to worry about what He has revealed to us; we simply need to pursue His heart and HIs mind with all our strength.

I love this commercial.  Imagine the poor guy who, out of the kindness of his heart, allows the other gentleman to go ahead of him in line, simply because he only had one item to pay for.  Then, this second man is declared the millionth customer and wins $50,000!  Wow.  Quite a price to pay for being nice, don’t you think?

The commercial emphasizes that all customers are special at Ally Bank. That’s good to know.  And, I guess they are implying that you’ll never miss out on what’s important in life because the people at Ally Bank are nice to everybody!

FirefoxScreenSnapz228How do we know if we are “missing out” in life?  It seems to me that, first of all, LIFE needs to be defined.


1.  How does Jesus’ promise of abundant LIFE in John 10:10 (“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”) guarantee that we will not miss out on what’s most important in this world?

2.  How do our values fit into the question, “Am I missing out in life?”
