Good is OK, but everyone remembers the BAD!

As the story goes… "He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, just as his father Uzziah had done. The high places, however, were not removed; the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there. Jotham rebuilt the Upper Gate of the temple of the LORD.  As for the other events of Jotham's reign, and what he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah?"
Jotham did what was right in the eyes of the LORD.  He did rebuilt the temple gate, but mostly the specific things worth mentioning were the bad things he did.   The rest of what he did was just a sidebar in some other book.
Makes me wonder…  Will only the bad I've done be remembered or will something of the good be remembered?  How much of what I've done is insignificant and will only end up as a sidebar to the testamony of my life?

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. I’ve wondered about this too, and it doesn’t help that people erase the good things that have been done just because of a few mistakes.

    But we’re judged at the end of our lives by the lives we touched and the people we loved, and to them, we’re hardly ever just the sidebar.

  2. pita, that is a great thought about our love for others and how it impacts their life. How’s the verse go, “faith without works is dead.” God bless.
