When it’s over
Acts 9: 39
“Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.”
When your life is over what will you have left behind?
For Dorcas, it was the things she had made with her hands, robes and other clothing.
For Dorcas, it was a group of crying widows. Most likely the women she was good to and perhaps the poor she had helped.
What have you made? What have you produced in your life? Go on, look around, be thankful for the abilities God has given you that you have used for the good. Keep on using your gifts and skills for one day you will leave them.
Who have you invested in? Who will stand crying because they grieve for you? Go on, name them, people you have spent time with, encouraged, strengthened, given to. Keep on pouring into these people for one day you will leave them and they will be there reflecting on your life.
