An old Persian legend once pictured four angels watching God create the world. One said, "Why did God make it?" Another said, "How did God make it?" A third said, "Can I have it?" And the fourth said, "Can I help to make it better?"

1st - philosophical attitude - why?

2nd - scientific attitude - how?

3rd - selfish attitude - can I have it?

4th - Christian attitude - Can I help to make it better?

(From a sermon by Steve Shepherd, "A New Beginning For America" 1/22/2009)
