Growing up the phrase “celebration of life” was not in the vocabulary of my family or friends when it came to attending a funeral service…sad but true.
Gratefully we can make decisions which can change the trajectory of our lives as we conduct ourselves in a manner where our lives will be celebrated when we are called home by our Creator!
“Ultimately we must decide if we will choose to lead our lives in a manner worthy of a celebration when we die?”
I find it ironic how men to desire to be “known” in life, yet give little thought to how we will be “remembered” after we die. The question I wrestle with and one I suspect rattles around in the minds of most men:
“Is my life and what I prioritize reflective of how I would like to be remembered and do my actions and the investments of my time lay a foundation for the legacy I want to leave?”
The picture you see here and the quote by Paul Cole, President of the Christian Men’s Network, was something I created into the poster displayed in this post. This ties directly into the message our One Thing Men’s Ministry is sharing today at our weekly gathering concerning What Matters Most to Men.
- What we believe and Who we believe in is indicative in the way we conduct our lives.
- Where we invest our time reflects what and who has priority in our lives.\
- When we serve our humility is illustrated which also illuminates to those being served their value to us and to the world.
trusting God period!
