Last week a 4th grader came up to me and asked: “Mr. Dan, what is the meaning of life?” I was caught off guard at the depth of the question from such a young child and I only had a moment to answer as the kids were transitioning to their next class. What would you have said?

I thought for a moment and replied, “Love God and love people.” That is what the Bible says. It sums up all that we are called to do. If we do that, we will find our destiny. The child smiled knowingly and went to their next class.

That may be the best thing I taught all day. :o)

1 Peter 3:15 “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.”


Daniel Skognes

    “Love God and love people.” I believe relates to ‘’Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25)
