I was very challenged today, when a friend, who was obviously feeling a bit "down" on having discovered that something he had hoped for most possibly wouldn`t be able to happen for them (and I`m not refering to material things), suddenly said a very serious "What is Life?"
How to answer?
- I thought for a moment and then said "that`s a very deep question". I sat and thought, but I couldn`t find words to really answer it, and I ended up saying "that`s something that very difficult to describe and to put into words".
I felt that I had let him down, by not being able to give a better answer. And that he was probably expecting a better answer from my faith.
I wonder what answer others would have given or what any of you would advise me to say if a similiar situation arises again?
