The Honest Serving Men


The first verse of  Rudyard Kipling’s poem, “I Keep Six Honest Serving Men” goes like this:

I keep six honest serving men

(They taught me all I ever knew);

Their names are What and Why and When

And How and Where and Who.

This got me to thinking about my own existence and I posed the following questions to myself:

Who am I?

Why am I here?

What is the purpose of my life?

Where is my life taking me?

When will I arrive?

How will I know the answers?

I have given myself the weekend to ponder this and perhaps by Monday I’ll have some answers.  Please feel free to share some input on your own six honest serving men.

  1. There are so many “Life” book which attempt to give us the answers to the questions you ask. But actually the Holy Bible is the only book I know of which can answer every one of the questions asked. It gives us the who, what, and how comes of our existence on earth without question. I trust the book for many reasons, some spiritual, some historical, but this is yet another reason why I look to it as the greatest book ever written…
