“Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure, as Freud believed, or a quest for power, as Alfred Adler taught, but a quest for meaning. The greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life.” – Viktor Frankl

We’ve been watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” at home the last couple of days as time permits.

In the movie, George Bailey is shown what life would have been like without him.

He’s shown that his life does have meaning.

Most of us won’t be shown meaning in such a dramatic fashion, but we must face this “greatest task” and find our meaning in this world.

Christmas time is a great time to ponder this in response to the great gift that God sent all those years ago.

Merry Christmas.

Jake
