I believe that most of you have heard of the tragic death of a friend of many, a Motivational speaker, a Pastor and a man of God Dr. Myles Munroe, his wife and a number of people in a plane crash in Bahamas. Indeed, very many people live and die, but very few people leave a legacy. Dr. Munroe has left behind a legacy to the church and to the whole world.
Over the years, I have enjoyed reading his books and I have always enjoyed watching him on TV whenever I have had the opportunity.
Myles Munroe was always committed to serving God with his life and God gave him the opportunity to do so up to his dying day. In one of his books, Dr. Munroe wrote that “the greatest tragedy in life is not death, but living a life without a purpose”. Myles lived a life of purpose.
He was not only a church planter; he was also a teacher, a coach, an adviser to business owners, organizational CEOs and world leaders, above all this, Dr. Munroe was a man of God.
Such tragic events should always awaken us to the reality that life is a gift from God and we need to use it to serve God and his Church. Every man and woman should desire to live the life God has given him or her to be a blessing to people near and far.
“Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom”
God has endowed each one of us with skills, gifts and resources. These are not for us to use in any way we want but rather we are meant to use them for building the kingdom of God.
Also, each one of us has been given the opportunity to live, how are you using this opportunity of being alive? You have one life to live on this earth, the question is…. “If the time to go and meet your maker came at this moment, do you think God will say to you, “Welcome good and faithful servant”?
