Truth To Hear

Live A Life That Matters

By September 15, 2016 No Comments

Someday it will all come to an end.

All the things you collected whether treasure or baubles will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame, and temporal will shrivel to irrelevance.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear.
Your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire.

The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.

It won’t matter what you owned or what you were owed.
It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on.
It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.

What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion or sacrifice that enriches, empowers and encourages another human being.

What will matter is the clarity and care in which you loved other people and were a positive influence in their lives.

What will matter is the memory of how you lived in and through the lives that loved you and were close enough to observe you.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. It happens by choice.

It’s not about what you buy; it’s about what you build.
It’s not about what you get; it’s about what you give.
It’s not about what you learn; it’s about what you teach.

Someday it will all come to an end.

So live a life that matters.

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26

With a million things to do and not enough hours in the day to get it done, it's easy to zone out and slip into autopilot in order to survive. But perhaps life is not about adding more things to your already lengthy list, but rather, about pausing in the midst of it all to consider if what you're doing is really important.
