The Quality of Life and A Life of Quality

by P.J. Southam

The Westminster Shorter Catechism teaches us that life has a purpose and a meaning: to glorify God and enjoy him forever. Another way of saying that would be "to love God and to be loved by God." Since the Great Commandment is to love God with everything in us, and to love our neighbors, I believe that we can evaluate how well we have fulfilled our purpose in life by how well we have loved God and loved o

ur neighbors.A commonly heard term is "quality of life." People who use this term seem to equate quality of life with what someone can get from this world. I believe that a life of quality is one which loves God and loves others. I be

lieve it is a false notion to separate quality of life from a life of quality.

On May 26 Americans will set aside work to honor and remember those of the United States Armed Forces who have died in military service. "Memorial Day" is a time many set aside to reflect on the dearness of lives lost, visiting cemeteries and memories, and recounting the value added to our own lives by those we have loved who have died.
