Who are you living for, or in other words who is writing your life’s story? Do you call the shots in life or is there someone bigger? The famed writer Wendell Berry says, “the significance – and ultimate quality – of the work we do is determined by our understanding of the story in which we are taking part.” Selfishness seems to be our default because it allows us to control the story. Selfishness pushes our story to center stage but things quickly dissolve into chaos because we cannot control our environment or other people (think of the movie “Bruce Almighty”). We can have great joy and meaning in life when we realize another is writing the story.
