What will people say about you?

On last Tuesday I went to a funeral for the mother-in-law of a dear aquaintance. At the funeral one of the deceased ladies friend spoke about her. What struck me about what her friend said about her shocked me.

The woman began talking about her friends unique ways of doing things and planning activities for them. She was very involved in an organizations of girlfriends who were like sisters to each other because some of them had no biological sister(s).

Then as the woman kept talking about her friend and we in the congregation laughed. It all of a sudden hit me that the woman seemedd to be discribing me. WOW! Then my next thought was, what would my friends and others say about me at my funeral.

What will people say about you?

It is up to you to treat everyone right with the love of Jesus in you coming out of you in your conversation and actions. All you can do is what God commands us to do. People are going to love and people are going to dislike you. But what really matters is what God will say about you.

Will He say well done good and faithfull servant or will He say depart from me I never new you?

I want to hear well done! Well done! Enter into the rest of the Lord!

Are we really doing well my friends? Are we really?

Father, in the name of your Son Jesus Christ, I pray that You help us to do well. do be obidient to Your call, Your will, Your word and Your way. Lord touch my sisters and brothers ready this post to give their all to You so that when they stand before You at the gates of Heaven You will say to them, Well Done. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Much Love,
