The question, "What is the good life? has been the subject of many philosophical discussions and writings over the centuries. Millions of ordinary people have considered it as they started out on the road of life. The author reviews some of the thoughts by Greek philosophers, but concentrates on the Apostle Peter's statement in I Peter 3:10-12. The tongue is a powerful instrument for good or evil. God gave us the power to make choices about the decisions life calls on us to make, but these choices have consequences. Many evil roads open up for us, and we must choose to turn away from them, and choose to do good.
