The only thing that really matters

Years ago, Harvard University began a study that has tracked the lives of three hundred former male students, paying close attention to the various physical, relational, psychological and spiritual factors that have shaped their lives. And now this study, called the Grant Study, is able to give a comprehensive viewpoint on what really affects men’s level of happiness over a lifetime. When asked what he’d learned from his years of poring over this data, psychiatrist George Vaillant, who directed the program for over four decades, and from whom you would expect a very complex answer, gave this breathtakingly simple answer: ‘The only thing that really matters in life are your relationships.’
Jesus said the same thing two millennia ago. ‘Love God and love your neighbour…that’s everything God asks of us.’
