If I Knew Then Advice on careers, finance, and life from Harvard Business School's Class of 1963

Charity & Spirituality

Over the last 40 years, I have had a growing conviction that the most important decision any person makes is what he or she does about God.

The Judeo-Christian foundation is that there is one God who created us and our universe, and that He told us in His written word who He is and who we are.

The Christian completion is that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Son of God, who came that we could be reconciled to God, that there will be an end and a judgment, and that those who believe in Jesus will spend eternity with God.

Those brief words are a huge challenge to those who grew up in my environment, but their ramifications are so great that they deserve the most serious consideration.

My conclusion is that I do believe them and that our humble (often feeble) declaration of that belief is a vital part of making it accessible to others.
