What will they say about me?

Some years ago the Indiana Department of Social Services sent a letter to a former client which said: “Your food stamps will be stopped in March because we received notice that you passed away. May God bless you. You may reapply if there is a change in your circumstances.” Well, there haven’t been too many who have seen a change in those circumstances! It does remind me, however, of three friends talking about what they would like people to say about them at their funeral?” One hoped they’d say: “He was a great humanitarian.” The second hoped it would be: “He was a great husband and father.” Wheras the third said, I hope they’ll say: “Look, he’s moving!”
As for me, however, my biggest concern is about what God will say about me. I’m hoping it will be: “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
