Num. 12:3 Now Moses was more humble than any other person on earth.

What would you like for history to record about you? People are remembered for a lot of things. Some are remembered for their role in changing the course of history: some invent things that make life easier for those who follow, some are wiser than most and their thoughts are recorded, some gain great power and are remembered for how they handled it, and then there are some who live out their lives without being recognized by any but their families and closest friends.

What do you want to be remembered for? If you could determine how your life would be summarized in one word, what would it be? Moses was recognized as being the most humble person on earth. And, it was God who said it! Wow! How do you think God thinks about you? What one word would He use to define your life? Humble? Faithful? Honest? Loving? Sincere? Giving? Trustworthy? Proud? Unfaithful? Greedy? Dishonest? Spiteful? Hypocrite? Selfish? Unreliable?

Each of us will leave a legacy behind us that others will remember us by.  As time goes on, our legacy will fade in relevancy; it will become mere words spoken to describe whom we were.  Future generations will be honored to have some of us in their genealogical record, and for some of us we will looked upon with shame and be a black mark on their family history.  How we live life does make a difference.

What one word would you use to describe your life? Would God agree? Remember, it is to Him that you will one day give an account.   For God, your memory never fades.  Only you will determine how others remember you. How God remembers you will determine how you spend eternity.
