Have you written your eulogy yet?

I have to confess that I am a magazine junkie. It's hard for me to resist an interesting magazine and they read so much quicker than a book, so it's a quick "fix" when the reading bug hits.

One of my favorite ministry mags is K! Cutting edge children's ministry info, resources, conferences (can't attend them, though, but they're there none the less) and challenging articles. I never fail to learn something new, something practical that can be used immediately.

The November/December 08 issue included an article titled "Keeping the End in Mind" by Tina Houser. She encouraged readers to spend a few moments writing their own eulogy. Her premise was that seeing how you want the end to come out will determine the direction you should take every day and affect the decisions you make every day. Are you taking steps each day to achieve the end that you hope for - in your personal life, your family, your ministry? What do you have to get rid of or add on? What do you want your legacy to be?

Sounds like one of the 7 habits... I will have to take the time to ponder that!
