Live A Life That Matters



Live A Life That Matters

Live A Life That Matters
Coffin
Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end.
Grave

There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.

Sunrise
Time

All your possessions & collections - whether treasures or baubles...
Will pass to someone else.

Treasures
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
Death

It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.

Own

Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear.

Couple

So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire.

Resentments

The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.

Win or loose

It won't matter where you came from, or on which side of the tracks you lived.

Tracks

It won't matter whether you were beautiful, handsome... Brilliant, rich or dull.

 Beautiful & Handsome

Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

Skull

So what will matter?
How will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built

 Built

Not what you got, but what you gave.

purchases
 Volunteers

What will matter is not your success, but your significance.

Success
success, significance
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
Taught

What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, or sacrifice...

compassion

that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.

empowered

What will matter is not your competence, but your character.

Good Character

What will matter is not how many people you knew....

Love

But how many people will feel a lasting loss, when you’re gone.

Grave

What will matter is not your memories....

Memories

but the memories that live in those who loved you.

Memories
What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what...
Grave

Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.
It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice.

death In Christ

Lets make that choice NOW ! 
To live a life that matters
