And How Are You Today?

What is man, according to the pessimist? The optimist? Sinner? Sufferer? Which are you today? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 749).
  • Pessimist: Human affairs are not all that good now and will surely get worse.
  • Optimist: Human affairs are not all that bad now and will surely improve.
  • Sinner: I am far from perfect, but that does not automatically make me either a pessimist or an optimist.
  • Sufferer: I am in pain now, but from this alone you cannot tell if I find redemptive purpose and challenge in the midst of pain.
Today I am most certainly a sinner as is indicated by my being inured to much of the world's suffering. I am an optimist because I believe the Creator inspires mankind to entirely practical wonderment opening doors of helpful discovery.
