What would you like your epitaph to be?

I am sure it has occurred to you that one day your time on earth will come to an end. And for me – the way it will come to an end – often scares me. And then you will be buried somewhere and people will gather around you to have a last look at you and some might commemorate you. After you are buried a headstone with your epitaph is inscribed for an elegant and befitting memorial tribute for generations to see.

Once a person said, “I don’t care what people would say about me once am dead.” But a few will, a few wise people will.

Here’s the question:
What would you like your epitaph to be on your headstone?

It is by the way you live now, you write our own funeral speech. So if one was read out for you today, how would it sound? It is a period of mourning of course, and so I am sure that everyone would want to honour the dead by saying nice things about him or her. A good funeral speech is far from the last word.

Here are some who had it this way on their stone:

Poof! That was fun.

Yay, it’s over!

Do not weep at my burial pit.

I’ll be back!

You are next!

Totally worth it!

I am not leaving you this soon!

When you seriously start thinking about what your eulogy would say then maybe you will notice some real transformations taking place in you. So give it a solemn thought!

Though life is tough, the lessons we learn from it are worth it, and it eventually helps us to live a life worthy of the best eulogy imaginable. So live wise, love life and live strong, God is on our side.

The routine of life must be “happiness and hard work” and it would be preposterous for you to waste your life doing unworthy stuff and living in oblivion. You can make your life uninspiring, dull and monotonous by the way you live.

Change it! Get God! Get help! And live life to the fullest! You have a long way to go!


Proverbs 21:21 says this:

Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honour.

Psalm 16:11 

You will make known to me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; in Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Yes, I know Hebrews 11 talks so much on faith and I know we need to walk by faith and not by sight every single day to believe that God knows what’s best for us.
      God bless.
