Have you ever given much thought to what will happen after you are gone? I know it’s not a happy thought but it is a necessary question. Most of us spend our lives looking in the rearview mirror. Through that mirror you see everything clearly. You can see turns you shouldn’t have taken. You will see choices that you wish you could do over.
Moses understood that his time was drawing near and it was time to pass the baton to the next generation. Moses put things in place to prepare for the time when he was not going to be present. When it was nearing Moses time, God spoke to him and told him that he was about to die. He gave Moses specific instructions so that Israel would have consistent leadership that would build on the model that Moses left.
Moses documented everything for others to follow. What must it be like to live your life so full of passion and purpose that when it’s time to die, you know that you completed everything that God told you to do.
Today, use the rearview mirror from eternity and see what the status of your legacy is. If you see things that need to be corrected, start now. Give God your best each day and when it is that time to salute your service, you will hear Almighty Good say, “Well Done.”
