Today I was listening to Pastor Greg Laurie on the christian radio station out here (90.3 KFLR). He has been doing a series on The Greatest Stories Ever Told. Today's series was titled "The Foolish Wise Man II" in which he finished a discussion about King Solomon. He talked about how Solomon grew up in a christian home but after he became king, he did a lot of things that God did not approve of. Solomon learned from his mistakes however and tried to warn others about his mistakes. Pastor Laurie went on to say that when he dies, his grave marker will say his date of birth to his date of death. No one will remember what happened the day he was born or the day he died. What people will remember though is what he did in between those days. On your grave marker, that is the dash. So, what will you do with your dash? Make the most of everyday you have and live everyday like it's your last. What do you want people to remember about you? None of us know when we will die but we do know what we can do with the time that we have now. So, live your dash to the fullest!
