Where will we be longer?
Live to be forgotten….
We live in a world groping for meaning. I took some young leaders to the oldest cemetery here. I asked them how long these people lived, and how many centuries they have laid here. I asked them to ponder the lives they have yet to live. After taking time to reflect, to walk around, their response was profound… “We live here but a short while, and we’ll spend more time lying here many times over, than we did alive. Our lives are short, really short.”
May we then, therefore, live life with purpose, meaning, life, and may we live in such a way as to make sacrifices for the King of Kings, and our contributions here, forgotten, save by Him.
