Modern writers depict the pessimism of our time and many of them throw up their hands in despair and say, “There is no answer to man’s dilemma.” Hemingway once said, “I live in a vacuum that is as lonely as a radio tube when the batteries are dead, and there is no current to plug into.” Eugene O’Neill in “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” typifies the philosophical attitude of our day. He says, “Life’s only meaning is death.” I say to Hemingway and to O’Neill, who have already gone on, “There is more to life than death.” There is more to life than a radio tube that needs a place to plug into. Jesus taught us the dignity and importance of being a person. God put us on this earth for a purpose, and our purpose is fellowship with God and to glorify God.

Listen to Billy Graham’s 1-minute message on hope for the future.

Prayer for the day

Loving Father, Your love for me transcends the hopelessness of this life and gives me the purpose I so desperately need.

    Praise God for putting the Reverend Billy Graham on this earth when he did, to show each of us why we were put here. When we realize why we are here we can fulfill Gods plans for our lives.
