Using GPS to Navigate Life

After Mass today, have a conversation with your children, asking, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” After a few moments of discussion, ask, “Who do you think God wants you to be when you grow up?” Emphasize to your children that God has a specific plan in mind for them, and that following God’s plan is the surest way to happiness. Every life decision-which college to attend, whom to date, which job to pursue, whether to enter seminary, whom to marry-should be undertaken only after praying for God’s guidance. In other words, encourage kids to navigate life using GPS-God’s Positioning System.
