Preach My Eulogy?

Preach my eulogy?  Who’s gonna preach my eulogy?  I’m preaching it everyday.  The way I treat my neighbors, friends, enemy; the way I interact with my peers, subordinates, superiors; how I spend my time and resources; the causes I support; the way I prove that I care or don’t care; whether I worship the True and Living God and submit my life fully to Him or not.  These things tell my story.

I’ve attended many funerals where the person lived such a hellish life that the minister didn’t say a word about him but simply spoke to the attendees.  I’ve also seen ministers make a very good attempt to preach a rank sinner into heaven.  When all is said and done, however, our story is being told daily.  And no matter the words spoken at our sunset, the true eulogy has already been preached.  So if it’s in you to do good, do it now.  You’re preaching your own eulogy.  And remember with every step you take and, as the song says, every move you make, you’re actually preaching your own eulogy.  So live… with this thought in mind.  And ask, “Will there be any true words of praise?”

Will there be any true words of praise or will they need to fish for something positive to say?  Will they attempt to skirt the issue… or just speak to the living in an attempt to avoid the details of our sordid lives?  What will be left imprinted on the hearts of those we know?  What will they say away from the pulpit?  What will they say in small circles?  What will be the sound and mood associated with my name?  Who’s gonna preach my eulogy?  I’m preaching it now.  May my first cousin, Missionary Ruth Giles, rest in peace.  To be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD.  She preached it… and preached it well.  Thanks for visiting, following, subscribing.  Take care & be blessed.
