Doing Well or Doing Good
Close your eyes and visualize a moment in time when you were truly happy. What made that moment special? Where were you? Who were you with? What were you doing? Now think of our society today and ask what does it say we need to be happy? Did your vision include things like fame, fortune, earthly possessions? Or did it include something more meaningful like family and friends?
To share a simply an analogy to highlight the point: Imagine going out for dinner with some friends and having a great night – what makes it a great night? The company with great discussion and fun? Or an amazing steak or bottle of wine?
I got a question from a friend on the left last week that I had no idea how to answer. They asked how America can have such horrific gun violence (their words, not mine) and the right never wants to ban guns because they have a right to a gun, yet a couple of people die from vaping and now the right is supportive of banning flavored vaping – how is this possible?
- Do people own their bodies?
- Do they have a God-given right to control what they put into their bodies?
- Or is government our nanny who knows what best for all of us?
If you believe in freedom, how can you be consistent with those beliefs and be okay with this ban from the Trump administration? I would love to hear from you on this?
