What do people remember about me when I am not around? What will people say about me when the Lord takes me from this earth to paradise? When others speak my name is it in love and respect or do they curse and swear?
Remembrance is important because “The memory of the righteous is a blessing, but the name of the wicked rots.” I watch drama and sci-fi movies and shows as much as I watch historical documentaries. History documentaries often revolve around people, wars, tragedies, and their dates. However, the Bible also talks about people; their life, their faith, and their character.
Men and women of faith and self-sacrifice are remembered as a blessing. Faithless and wicked men and women rot. Since I want others to remember me as a blessing I want to be a man of faith like Mary (Jesus’ mother), Abraham,. and especially my Lord Jesus.
