Leaving Your Mark Matters.

How often have you thought about the mark you are leaving on this world every day?  It is tempting, even as a clergy, to go about my day with no thought beyond my to do list and my "what is coming up?" list.  So before you go farther...stop...take a time out for the next few minutes and hit play on the video below...

Her mark saved her son...and how many others?  Did she just do her job?  Yep, but when she did, she knew she had "a dog in the fight."  From what I know of the generation however, it wouldn't have mattered, everyone knew someone whose life was on the line.

With seven billion people in this world today, it is not all that easy to stand out and set yourself apart.  Then again, sometime it is just the little things that make the biggest difference.  Today is a good day to remember that leaving a mark has as much to do with majoring on the minors as it does with going for the gold.

"...that's how it should be with you. When you've done all you should, then say, "We are merely servants, and we have simply done our duty."  Luke 17:10 CEV

May I Ask?  Who has made their 'mark' on your life?

May I Suggest?  Take a moment to inventory your past week and consider the one ahead.  Where can/did you leave a mark of significance?  Where will you?
