Death becomes a great equalizer for humanity. Regardless of how wealthy or how impoverished one is, in death, we are all equal. Since we all have to die (unless the Lord returns), it is important to consider, what will we be remembered for?
Egypt, who had a glorious history of innovation and political dominance, was reduced to nothing. The pharaoh who once reigned in infamy, was buried in dishonor. Other great warriors and leaders all died unfulfilled.
We only get one life. How will it be lived? Will we do those things that bring glory to God and leave a godly legacy for others to follow? Or will we waste our lives and go down to the grave with regrets and unfinished business? There is life after death and in eternity, we will enjoy the rewards of a life well-lived or we will spend eternity ever reminded of what we could have done but failed to do. You and I get one life. Let’s make it count!
