All kinds of information can be found on tombstones, but one item is exactly the same on every marker: the "dash" between the dates.
That little dash doesn't tell us anything. But it represents the whole life of that individual. It represents the legacy that was left for generations to come. Our names and dates of birth have been established and recorded. We are now working on our "dash". And it is always horizontal, representing our dealing with our fellow man.
If we have made a lasting impact on enough people in our lifetime, our legacy will be remembered for a time. If we have led just one person to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and have brought honor and glory to God, our legacy is eternal. What will your "dash" say about you?
When Noah was building the ark he was in the minority—but he won. When Joseph was sold into Egypt by his brothers, he was in the minority-but he won. When Gideon and his three hundred men, with their broken pitchers and lamps, put the Midianites to flight, they were in the minority-but they won. David, ridiculed by his brothers, went out to meet Goliath, he was in the minority- but he won. When Jesus Christ was crucified by the Roman Soldiers, He was in the minority—but He won.
"IF GOD BE FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?" (Romans 8:31).
A Saintly woman with beautiful complexion was asked what kind of cosmetics she used. In reply she offered this prescription:
"I use for my lips, truth.
For my voice, prayer.
For my eyes, pity.
For my hands, charity.
For my figure, uprightness.
For my heart, love."
* Love one another (I John 3:11!
* Admonish one another (Romans 15:14)!
* Edify one another (I Thess.5:ll)l
* Consider one another (Heb. 10:24)!
* Forbear one another (Ephesians 4:2)!
* Forgive one another (Ephesians 4:32)!
* Be of the same mind toward one another (Romans 12:16).
The clock of life is wound but once, and no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop at late or early hour.
To lose one's wealth is sad indeed.
To lose one's health is more.
To lose one’s soul is such a loss that no man can restore.
Thirty-nine people died while you read this short item.
Every hour 5,41! meet their maker.
You could have been among them.
Sooner or later, you will be.
ARE YOU READY?
No one can walk backward into the future.
Kind actions begins with kind thoughts.
Be a trail blazer not a trailer.
You are young only once, but you can stay immature indefinitely.
