On today’s "Focus on the Family" broadcast, Luci Swindoll recounts a story told by Dr. Alexander Pappaderos, a Greek philosopher, teaching a class in ethics and humanities on the island of Crete. He likened the meaning of life to a piece of mirror that reflects light to the world with truth, humour and joy. Luci describes her upbringing and a major incident that troubled her as a 12-year-old, when she discovered her father had a previous marriage. She finally reconciled with her dad when he helped her see that human beings aren’t perfect and she must be more tolerant and not expect perfection in others.
