Echoes, Epitaphs, and Eulogies

JP: Good read by Diane Heeney

Life’s Echo

Excerpt:

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!
