Radical re-evaluations

Robert Oppenheimer, one of the top ten theoretical physicists in the world, has gone down in history as the man who created the Atom Bomb. But when he saw the results of what he had made, Oppenheimer underwent a radical re-evaluation of his values. He resigned his position and spent much of the remainder of his life trying to undo the damage, trying to get the genie of atomic weapons back in the bottle.
Sometimes, we too have moments of awareness when we start to see that what we once thought so important is really of no lasting value at all. We should welcome those moments, because they are God’s messengers to us telling us that there is still time to change, time to live the rest of our lives for those things whose value lasts for ever: things to do with faith, hope and love.
