What would YOU like for people to say at YOUR FUNERAL??

21 Apr

I often remind people at funerals that you preach your own funeral . . . WITH YOUR LIFE. What a pastor says at your funeral will seldom be remembered . . . What people remember is HOW YOU LIVED.

What kind of funeral are YOU preaching??

Think about it . . . What would you like for people to say??

Three good friends were driving along on the highway one Saturday: a doctor, a teacher, and a lawyer. All of a sudden, a brand-new SUV cut them off. In an attempt to miss the shiny big vehicle, the driver swerved to the left and hit the median. The car flipped several times and all three friends died instantly.

They all found themselves in line waiting to get into Heaven. The doctor asked the others, “Hey, what do you want people to say at your funeral? I want them to say, ‘She was a great doctor, and she never let down any of her patients.'”

The teacher said, “I want people to remember me as a great educator, so I would want to hear people say, ‘He was a wonderful teacher, a great role model for children, and he changed countless lives throughout his career.'”

Then the lawyer said, “I’d like people to say, ‘Look! He’s moving!'”
