DASH - Destiny Awaits So Hurry!

Walking through a cemetery can be a sobering thing. Pieces of etched rock to mark people's remains, over grown grass, and an occasional picture or keepsake is the usual scene. Taking a look at the tombstones, we usually read something interesting about the person like that they were a beloved husband or a war vet. Something most every tombstone will have in common is one's (1) Birth date (2) A Dash (3) Year of Death.
Number's 1 and 3 are not as important as number 2--Which is the DASH.
The DASH symbolizes how a person lived their lives. Was the person gracious or a tyrant with people? What were the person's priorities? Etc.
-The DASH is a summation of the person who now lies in the ground- If you are reading this, then you are in your and forming and making your own legacy of how you will be remembered. Ephesians 5: 15-16 states, "Be careful how you walk not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil." I think this is good advice. The Apostle Paul does not want you to throw away your life by wasting it on foolish things. Rather his counsel is for you to live by wisdom-which has its foundation in God's Word.
With all this in mind-remember your DASH... Destiny Awaits So Hurry!
Now is your time
Today is your day
Any moment can be your moment
For a new beginning
