Our beloved little puppy like most
puppies has moments of destruction.Sure
it’s minor compared to big dogs, however Mojo likes to rip open things and pull
out the stuffing.You can see in this
picture a trail of stuffing that’s been left behind.You know where Mojo has been, and where he
went just by looking at it.
Our lives on this earth are like
that.What kind of trails are we leaving
behind?What do people see when we leave
a room?Are we leaving Godly character and
legacy or are we leaving a mess behind.
I remember once hearing Maya Angelou
speak and she was saying that when she has a party and people come over, if she
hears someone speaking negative she’ll politely ask them to leave.She doesn’t want their words clinging to the
carpet and hanging around in her home.That
has always stayed with me.
We forget that our lives, our words,
and our very being is leaving a trail.It is easy to forget this.It is
easy to think that it will continue forever, but unless the Lord tarries we’ll
all say our final good-byes on this earth.What will we leave behind?
James 4:14 (ESV)14 yet
you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist
that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
In a few year span of time several people I’ve known and
loved have moved in with Jesus.The
relocation can be difficult, and I know I’ll see them again.Losing them all makes me think more and more
about the time I have on this earth.Remember
this as you go throughout your day.What
kind of legacy are you leaving?What
kind of legacy do you want to leave?How
can you live a life that you want people to remember you?
God has awesome plans for your life.Get
