Echoes, Epitaphs, and Eulogies

JP: Good read by Diane Heeney

Life’s Echo


How will your life’s memory ring out to others when you are gone from this earth? Will it be in tangible deeds you performed (Acts 9:36-39)? Will someone strive to emulate what they recall of your godly example (I Tim 4:12) as you tried to be an “imitator of God” (Eph. 5:1)? Perhaps what you have done to train up your children will yield lasting fruit (Prov. 22:6).

Come next November 2nd, some folks might decide to plan their own epitaph; but by “apply[ing] our hearts unto wisdom” (Ps. 90:12) living wisely (Col. 4:5) we can determine today what the tone and inflection of our eternal echo will be. By God’s grace, we can be worthy of emulation (Phil. 4:9; I Thess. 2:10-12), and the memory of our lives can be spiritually prolific!
