Hey, how are those New Year's Resolutions coming along? As we all struggle to be a better, faster, stronger version of ourselves, this Christian blogger asks the question:
Are Life Lists unchristian? More specifically, are having goals to better yourself unethical in a world where lots of people have barely anything to eat or drink, when homelessness and lack of affordable healthcare are problems in even the richest country in the world? Some parts of me say “yessss!” It’s unethical to want to be on NPR or keep up a manicure when these things are problems....Goals are about being self-absorbed, about being, as the great Oprah puts it, “living your best life.” But what about other people’s lives? Are we really here to further only ourselves?
