The real test of our life’s philosophy

George Bernard Shaw, just before he died, wrote: “The science to which I pinned my faith is bankrupt. Its counsels, which should have established the millennium, led, instead, directly to the suicide of Europe. I believed them once. In their name I helped to destroy the faith of millions of worshippers in the temples of a thousand creeds. And now they look at me and witness the great tragedy of an atheist who has lost his faith.”
Compare this to Saint Paul, who, at the end of his life, said: ‘I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord the righteous judge will award to me – and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.’
The real test of our life’s philosophy is how we see it at the end.
