“The memory of the righteous is blessed, but the name of the wicked will not” (Proverbs 10:7).
It was from those who preceded us that the wonderment of what it is to be the people of God was stirred within our soul. On our best days it is these for whom we give thanks to God for their placement in our lives. And it is in our memories of them that on our worst days we find the encouragement to press on. Someday each of us will be but a memory. Let us live each day inspired that we, too, might be a blessed memory to those who will come after us.
