The Zero-Sum Game of Life

Posted in Life, Musings, Purpose by enochlau on 18 March, 2009

It seems like I’m stuck in some zero-sum game with what I am able to do and what I’m not. Back when I was a student, I could play the piano far better than now (which wasn’t much anyway). When I consider what little remains of my ability, I wonder where the rest of it has gone to.

I’ve exchanged some of it for a job, and money to get by. Sometimes, it’s scary to wonder whether it’s all worth it in the end; you win some, you lose some.

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”  – Jim Elliot

I wonder, when the Great Auditor finally gets to my account… will I be in the red or the black? 

Will you?
