I hadn't until I read this post from Paul Tripp about New Year's resolutions, or the reasons why we shouldn't necessarily make them.
"Most of us won't be written up in history books. Most of us only make three or four momentous decisions in our lives, and several decades after we die, the people we leave behind will struggle to remember the event of our lives. You and I live in little moments, and if God doesn't rule our little moments and doesn't work to recreate us in the middle of them, then there is no hope for us, because that is where you and I live."
Honestly, I'm a little disturbed after reading this. The thought that all that I am, have, and do will matter little after I am gone is a bit sobering.
How much time do I spend on things that will last?
