My friends Jason and Kyle are talking a lot about story lately, but here’s a twist on your story that comes from a conversation had by Rachel the other day that she shared with me last night. This kind of follows on Kyle’s post today.
How would you like your obituary to read?
What would you think of your obit saying only “(Name here) denied him/herself, took up his/her cross, and followed Christ daily.”
This, of course, is not something one could claim about oneself, but it is exactly what Jesus said any who follow him would do.
Obituaries vary greatly in length, specificity, and especially the stories they tell of the deceased. Though I’m sure some people write their own, yours won’t be published until after you are gone.
How might what you would want written about you differ from what others will write?
