Since I'm in school planning and organization mode around here, I haven't much time to blog, at least not with any consistency right now, so I thought I'd select a question each week to ponder.
Feel free to comment publicly or email me privately. Or just read and reflect on your own.
My question this week is this.
What would you most like to be remembered for?
In reading St. Francis de Sales, he points out that after we die, it is not long before we are forgotten. Of course our children will remember us, probably our grandchildren, (who will only remember us as older folks), and if we are very blessed, maybe even a few great-grandchildren will we get to meet and they might remember us. But within about 50 years after our death, not many, if any, will recall who we are.
Obviously, living our lives for Christ, striving for holiness so that we can live with Him forever in Heaven is or should be the forefront of our lives. Does our life reflect this? If you were to die today, what would you most be remembered for?
