The Most Worthy Area of Inquiry




   Toward what ought I focus my mind and attention? What is worthy 
   of my efforts and energies?  What area of inquiry?  
   Mathematics?  Science?  Politics?  Economics?  I look around me 
   and see unhappy marriages everywhere.  Almost every marriage 
   you become familiar with is either breaking up or at least very 
   unhappy.  All this means unhappiness --- personal unhappiness.  
   People are unhappy and confused --- parents, children, 
   everyone.  People just don't know how to play the game of life.  
   To me this is the big problem of life.  The problem of being 
   happy.  Mental health and happiness.  And it is to this problem 
   that I would direct my attention.  It is immeasurably more 
   important than mathematics, science, politics or any other such 
   subject.  And what is the key to personal and family happiness?  
   I think the answer lies in the proper attitudes, values, and 
   outlooks on life.  And what are the proper attitudes, values 
   and outlooks on life?  I believe they are exactly those that 
   God has commanded us to live by.  We find them in the Bible and 
   in our own heart and conscience.  We just need to take them 
   seriously and obey.
