I think at the end of our lives, we would all like it to be said of us that we lived a good life. What does that mean exactly? You can be considered good if you make a good living, If you have a good marriage, If you have good kids. Some people would consider

A protagonist in a story is the main character of the story. In your life that’s you. God doesn’t just want you to be the main character of your story, he wants you to be the hero of your story. If we are being honest, this is the kind of life that we secretly want.
