I see this question asked over and over again in blog posts and magazine articles.
It’s become a popular exercise in perspective.
Here’s the premise: We know the end of our lives is inescapable, so let’s take a critical look at the way we’re living, and if our current actions aren’t going to encourage others to say positive things about us at our funeral, then hopefully, there’s still time to change our ways.
In larger terms, they’re talking about our legacy. What we leave behind.
Ironically, what I will leave behind will be important to everyone but me.
Because at the time, I’ll be lying in a velvet-lined box, my senses off-line, my brain and body stilled by a Creator who took final possession of what was rightly his from the beginning.
