Their was a coptic man who absoloutley loved God, but one day he went to the monastery and talked to a monk (forgot the monks name sorry bout that).
He than asks the monk. "Why are you living all your life, why do you stay many years in a hot monastery with limited food when maybe this is nothing maybe their is no God.
What if you are wasting your life here all this time!" Than the monk said, "What if their is God?
What if we are doing this for a reason? What if we are doing this to be full of life in heaven and richness in heaven and fufilness in life?"
The man was shocked by his answer. (I think he became a monk himself I am not sure).
So this story shows that we do this all for a reason. I learned this story from my priest in
church, and can you please tell me if you thought this was a affecting you story or a non-affection story... It affected me plenty much.
