Former New York City Mayor Edward Koch died last week at age 88. Mr. Koch, a Jew, is said to have asked these words be inscribed on his tomb stone. "My father is Jewish, my mother is Jewish, I am Jewish". These are the last words of Daniel Pearl the wall Street Journal reporter slain by terrorists in 2002.
What would your last words be? Words that affirm your faith and forever define your identity? Think this through. By words we live and by words we can shape our eternity in the family of God. To distille a life into one phrase is to know oneself.
Can we define our life in one simple sentence? At the end of our life could we clearly state in a few words what your life has been about?
