John 6:27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.” (NIV)
It is the desire of everyone to leave a mark. To leave tangible evidence or signs that we were here, lived, existed and thrived. For some it is the blessing and legacy of children. For others there are inventions, songs written, cures to illnesses, simple knitted garments, beautiful pieces of art, heart-rending tomes or unbreakable athletic records. More often than not, these things may or may not win awards or accolades.
The most daunting and humbling thought is that nothing you have ever done in life truly mattered. That once you pass on, that’s it. What many people fail to realize is that while their acts did not win awards, make the news or mention in People magazine, they may have touched another person in such a way that they never imagined or realized. That a smile, unsolicited kind word or gesture, even performing a seemingly unimportant job with grace, integrity and dignity. Those things each, like stones thrown into a peaceful lake have ripples. Do all things to the glory of God, everything done for God will last!
Making His praise glorious!
