My idea of living a good life would be doing all that I can while I can to help people and do my part in this world, but also to live a life that reflects the love of my God.
Don't run after it. The comfort of not running after the comfort is comfort itself.
The "good life" for Christians is very different than what our society promotes through its crass commercialism but that isn't surprising considering this warning:
Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
For Christians,the "good life" is not to be found in this world but rather in the eternal life to come if a life of sacrifice,obedience and faith is lived out as these words from Jesus indicate:
38And unless you are willing to take up your cross and come with me, you are not fit to be my disciples. 39If you try to save your life, you will lose it. But if you give it up for me, you will surely find it.
Being a positive person, or having a positive effect on the lives of as many other persons as possible. I'd say that's. . .my basic idea.
Financial security, emotional security, spiritual security, physical security.
Having a job you love that pays enough to ensure the wellbeing of your family and friends. If you can't pay it forward, there's no point.

Why do most people, whilst they acknowledge God's existence fail to live for him?The devil has done everything he can to make people think that he doesn’t exist and yet most people live for him. Most people, though they believe in God don’t live for him. Why is that?

I am about to sign off for the evening but I just had this question pop into mind. If religion eases pain or gives comfort to someone what is wrong with that?I am not religious, believe in a God concept after a fashion but don't trust religion. I feel very very wary of religion quite honestly, see...
