“Sometimes we ask, ‘So what?’ and sometimes we believe, ‘Everything matters’. But we’re wisest when we can hold both at one time.”

NATIONAL DUDLEY ON WISDOM

I first heard this from Ken Boa. I’m not sure he was the original creator of this quote, but I identify with this quote.

So what? That’s a great response when I’m so wrapped up over an issue and can’t really see to the end of it. I’ve got a pile of them right now.

But everything matters, too. My faith leads me to believe that all things work together toward man’s reconciliation with God and the earth. So if that is true, then every single thing matters.

My best example of that is a neighborhood game of monopoly. The pieces go around. Some neighbors get rich and others go bankrupt. Eventually, all the pieces go back into the box. You’ll not remember next week who won or who lost. But you know what you will remember?

You’ll remember who cheated. You’ll remember who threw a fit when they lost. You’ll remember who sat beside you after they lost to help you play. You’ll remember how they played the game forever.

You won. So what? You lost. So what? And yet, at the very same time, everything matters.
