 Last week, one of my students posed the question, "if the sole point and purpose of my life is to know, love and serve The Lord (so that I can have life eternal with Him in Heaven), then WHY do 'earthly distractions' (WHY all the opportunities) surround me.
My response, simply, "To GLORIFY God".  (Since, like it or not, we have no choice in the fact that, at this moment, we are alive and breathing on this good earth.  In it/with it, we need to multiply the gifts He has given us in a way that is pleasing to Him.  
This writing speaks to "the way".  Who conditions me/us?
