30 Day Challenge: Day 23, A way in which you want to be remembered

This one takes no amount of thought to figure out what I'm going to say. I know I've often thought about what kind of things people might say at my funeral. I mean, I know that may seem morbid to some people. But I think in some ways it can be a good thing...it can help us focus on what really matters in life.

And what really matters in life? Living for God. Nothing in life we can strive for, will ever give us the kind of joy, and contentment that comes from living our lives in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. That is how I would like to be remembered. I would to like to be remembered as the man who spent his life living for God. A man who was always trying to draw closer to God in his walk. And who was also always striving to bring others to Christ.

Am I there yet? Certainly not...but that is my goal, and my prayer. All I can do is live day by day, moment by moment, striving to please the Lord.
