Three questions

The following is excerpted from Power Surge by Michael W. Foss, which I am reading for my Christian Education class at MSR (my last course, almost finished). I wanted to record it here to remember it:

    A delightful tale from czarist Russia tells of a priest who was walking along minding his own business when a royal guard stopped him at gunpoint. The guard demanded, "What is your name? Why are you here, and where are you going?"
    The priest gazed quizzically at the soldier and then asked, "How much do they pay you to do this work?"
    The soldier, somewhat taken aback, replied, "Why, three kopeks a month."
    "I'll pay you thirty kopeks a month if you will stop me every week and ask me these same questions," the priest said.
- Power Surge, p 128
Those are three good questions to keep asking ourselves:

  1. Who am I?
  2. Why am I here?
  3. Where am I going?
