Making Our Mark

It’s natural to want to leave our mark in life, but very few people are remembered past their own lifetime.

When we make a mark in sand, it will last only a few days before being blown or washed away.  Carve a mark on a tree and it may last decades, and if we chisel a mark on a rock it could last centuries.  In time, however, when the marked object is defaced or destroyed, so too is any evidence of what we did.

Many of us want to leave our mark on the world, be it in business, arts, sports or the military.  Even though some are extremely successful and leave behind a giant mark, when the world eventually ends so will all evidence of the things done upon it. (1 John 2:17)  If we invest time and effort marking temporal things, when they are destroyed, so too is that investment.

If we really want to leave a lasting impression, we should leave our mark on something permanent – GOD’S ETERNAL PLAN.  God has given us all the tools to do this, plus He has given us a role model (Jesus Christ) to show us how.  Things our Lord did in His life were in accordance to God’s plan and will be talked about and glorified forever.  If we follow Christ’s example and use the resources God provides, it is guaranteed our mark will never be erased, destroyed or fade.

We should always keep in mind: Life is but a drop in the ocean compared to eternity.  Personal glory in life is fleeting; however, the glory of God’s plan lasts forever.  Making our mark on GOD’S ETERNAL PLAN is something we will always be proud of. 

“His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.  Enter into the joy of your lord.’” (Matthew 25:21)
