I recently attended funeral services for my grandfather, he was 85 years old when God called him home. After not only hearing but also speaking about how great and loved he was, it got me to thinking, one day people will be celebrating my life when I’m gone but I wonder… what would they say?
We all would like to think what we say and do and the impact we have on other people’s lives is always positive but are they really?
Have you reflected lately on your life?
Have you really thought about the impact you have made on some people’s lives lately? Whether over your lifetime, over the last month, week, or even today?
Often times we take for granted what we think people should know, especially when it comes to the people closest to us. Would you give your life for a loved one and if so, do they know that?
Make sure you leave a lasting impression on the hearts of those you love, don’t assume they just know and don’t wait until you have to give a eulogy to tell them how great and/or how loved they are by you, instead celebrate their life while they’re here.
I challenge you to let at least one person know how great they are, how loved they are, and/or all wonderful things about them you’ll treasure forever.
One day, you’ll be just a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
I’d love to know who you celebrated and how they responded, please keep me updated in the comments below.
