A couple days ago we had a wonderful person from our small town leave this world to go and live with our Father again. I was stunned with all the people’s kind words and wonderful things they said about him. I don’t think I ever heard anyone say any bad thing about this kind-hearted kid. I know I couldn’t say anything bad about him. I know without out a doubt that it was his time to leave the Earth but this whole thing got me thinking.
If I was to die today what would people be saying about me? What would people say that I was like? How would I be remembered?
I clearly remember the last time I talked with him. It was a couple weeks ago and I was working at the small convienence store in our town that he used to work at and he was filling up with gas on his motorbike. He came inside asked me how I was doing and bought a pop. He then walked back outside and came back in asking me if I had seen his glasses that he had set down somewhere, which I hadn’t seen. I helped him look and then he was on his way. This also sparked another question: What if I had known that it was the last time I would see him in this life? No, I didn’t know him very well at all but would I have done things differently or said something different?
My point in this post is to remind you how precious each and every day is here on Earth. Someday you will only be remembered. How will you be remember? Is there something you want to change? What do you need to do differently to remembered in a positive way? Also, treat everyone like its the last time you’ll see them because you’ll never know when it is truly the last.
