He Died to No One's Regret

One of the saddest verses I've read in the Bible is 2 Chronicles 21:20. This chapter talks about the life of Jehoram, one of the kings of Judah. At the time of Jehoram's death, the Bible records, "He passed away, to no one's regret."

Could you imagine?

You see, it doesn't matter how much power you have. It doesn't matter how much money you amass. It doesn't matter what title you might have.

What matters is the lives you touch. What matters is the lives that were made better because you lived. Because unless we're making life better for those around us, it just don't matter what else you might have accomplished in your lifetime.

You could be the king of the world, and if you lived a selfish life, you will still die a pathetic human being - _________(put your name here) died to no one's regret.

Make your life count. Make life better for those people around you.
