On May 22, my father spoke at Bethel University's commencement. Along with being hilarious he made some good points:

  1. You are going to die. Remember that and live your life understanding that death awaits.
  2. You are never unemployed (particularly relevant to college grads) because your job--your primary job--is to build shalom in this world. You are called to bring justice and mercy and love and peace to those around you. 
It's some good stuff to think about when your job or life ain't going to well. Or you are wondering what the heck to do with your life.

  1. Those are good points. I hope your shalom building is going well or at least keeping you honest.
