How do you want to be remembered?
I get caught up in the pressure and busyness of the day. I run and push and strive and ulcerate. It is sooooo much fun (sarcasm).
But is that what I want to be remembered for? Do I want to be known as someone who made a ton of money? Do I want people to know me as the guy who saved or started a company? A business?
That’s not my hope and dream.
I want to be seen as a loving husband, a good dad. I want to be known for my ability to see God, see beauty, see love. I want to be remembered for my ability to care, my propensity for worship, my reckless abandon where Jesus is concerned. I want to leave a legacy where I matter little and my King matters much.
See, life is too short for me to matter. There are too many things of greater significance to me. I can’t take myself to seriously when I see my position in the universe. Do I want to matter more? I’m not sure there is a point to me mattering.
God thinks I’m important. He saw me among the billions and asked me to be His child. Isn’t that enough. I think so.
And life is too short to waste my time on promoting myself.
Life is just too short.
