How would You like to be Remembered?

Have you ever ask yourself, if I have died yesterday, what would people be saying about me today? What kind of reputation am I making for myself? A wise writer once said " A good name is better than precious gold, and a day of one's death is better than the day of one's being born." Why would the day of one's death be better than the day of one's birth?. Some are remembered as philanthropist, humanitarians, advocates of civil rights or for their accomplishments in business, science, medicine or other activities. The scottish poet Robert Burns (1959-96) expressed the wish that some power would give us the gift to see ourselves as others see us. Can you look at yourself objectively and say that you have a fine reputation with other people and with God? How, though, would you like to be remembered?
