This will ‘sit’ with you!
We quote verses that ‘sound’ great/promising/‘rich’ to us; essentially we ‘write’ scripture as we ‘see fit’,
Are we “Christian” or selftian?
Yes! We are supposed to labor and plant, sow and reap. In current day, type, shovel, read, compute, till, drill, haul, treat, use our resources…
Why were we created?
Man was created to care for all things on Earth,
How many TRULY think of the generations to come?
Recycling is not ‘too’ difficult a task, do we?
Planting is not too difficult a task, do we?
Rather than head down the non ending path of our lives (most), I will ask each in their heart to state one thing we have done to ‘extend’ existence here on Earth?
It may be easy to state, but are we always thinking of this?
Think, “What have I done today to improve the world?”
Yes! It does sound “cookie”, but in your private moment – think – “How have I made a difference?”
Time to stop reading this “crap!”
ALL I am asking for is one way that anything you do will affect the environment you are NOW in a positive way 10, 20, 50, 100… years from now.
Yes, outstanding… but in YOUR private moment, THINK!
There are names like Darwin, Picasso, Nobel, Lincoln, Queen Elizabeth…The list is inestimable! Will you be remembered? Not by your family and/or friends, but by a non related individual.
How? For what? Think on these things carefully….
Do you want to be remembered?
Wow! We get down to it and there are the likes of Chopin that in no way ‘expected’ to be ‘remembered’ but was moved to do his best with the skills he had, and???
For those who may think this is ‘sexist’, let us take a short gander and meander through a list os reknown:
Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179), Francesca Caccini (1587-1640), Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677), Isabella Leonarda (1620-1704), Louise Farrenc (1804-1875), Fanny Mendelssohn (1805-1847), Teresa Carreño (1853-1917), Cécile Chaminade (1857-1944) etc.
And yet, we may ask: “In The Word?” Sit back and let us once again meander….
Eve, Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel Jochebed, Miriam…
Once again, I ask you “What will you be remembered for?”
The awesome thing is that you have time. Beginnings do not matter, there is The NOW! Yesteryear, yesterday is gone! And now?
Be moved, be led, be prayer filled and let the grace of God flow through you, Amen
