by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine – Seven Things I See
Editor’s note: Michael Pearl and the newest No Greater Joy magazine – January – February 2017 – is curious. This is the sole article and it speaks of getting older and how to end well. The rest of the issue is merely a years worth of calendar pages. Wonder what the heck is going down in Cane Creek that this is their publication? Stay tuned for fat-shaming, and other types of throwing shade at others…
But the passing of time has sharpened my perspective and provided wisdom. It is the understanding that comes from seeing generation after generation making wise choices or, more often, making the same mistakes and suffering the same fate. There are a few who reap a bitter crop early. They are thrown to the wolves quickly with disease, accident, evil men’s tampering, or intermingling with bitter souls. But the majority amble along carelessly, vaguely aware that the path they are taking has been known to end rather poorly. They keep smiling and going on in the futile hope that they will somehow escape the consequences of their choices.
So if by some supernatural, rhetorical gift I could cause you who have not yet reached the moment of reckoning to clearly see your end, what would I say? I would give you seven absolute Dos and Don’ts that, if obeyed, would spare you a lot of suffering and, more importantly, spare your children.
