1. Philosophy Is Everybody’s Business
Mortimer Adler said, “Philosophy is everybody’s business!”. When we were children, we wondered about the basic questions of life, like “Why does anything exists at all? Where did the universe come from? and so on.
1.1 Philosophical Choices in Life
As we grow older, many of us get occupied by the more practical day-to-day concerns of life. Yet, life is full of decision making, wishes, hopes – how should we live, is there any point in being an honest, truthful, selfless, trustworthy, patient, understanding, wise, responsible, accountable person? Is there is any point in pursuing truth, goodness, justice, love, etc? What we wish for, what we ask for, how we utilize our time, resources, opportunities, money, skills, talents, etc are deeply philosophical choices that we make every day.
2. Source of All That Is Good and Right and True
God is the source of all that is good and right and true. Ephesians 5:9 says, “the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true”. Becoming Christ-like is the answer to our broken world, our broken families, and hope for us and our children/next generation.
