A few years ago, my wife watched an episode of GOOD MORNING AMERICA with Gwynneth Paltrow as a guest. It was shortly after she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE. Joel Siegal was interviewing her and he asked about all of the awards she had won, all the magazine covers she had appeared on, and how these made her feel.
In effect, Paltrow replied, “It’s good, but after awhile you ask, ‘What’s the point? Your realize all of that is empty. And you look for spiritual meaning to your life.”
Now, last time I checked, Gwynneth Paltrow had not converted to Christianity. However, I hope she continues to ask good questions such as, “What’s the point?” She may very be on her way to Jesus.
After all, Jesus asked this same question years ago. He put it like this, “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?”
