Recently I was hiking with a group of boy scouts up a rather steep trail in the mountains near my home. After a few miles, some of the boys were really feeling the strain of the hike, and would occasionally stop on the trail. They would sometimes look forward with a hint of discouragement in their eyes because it seemed as if we would never reach the destination.

As I was enjoying game four of the Eastern Conference NBA Finals last night with my sons, I realized that a game without real challenges is not very interesting. Life is a game. The object of this game is to learn things, gain experience, and have joy. As you are playing this game, there will be turns when you draw a card that reads “Bankrupt,” or “Go Back Three Steps,” or “You Lose a Loved One.” Other cards will say “Payday,” or “Fall in Love,” or “Advance Token to Disneyland.” Whatever card you have drawn this turn, the objective remains the same – learn something, gain experience, and have joy.
