I saw this on a new blog I just started following, Boyd Bettis.
We must decide whether we want our ministry to count,
In the momentary applause of popular recognition
Or in the reproduction of our lives in a few chosen people
Who will carry on our work after we have gone.
Really it is a question of which generation we are living for.
I know that I tend to focus on what I’m done now more than preparing for the future.
Where do you see yourself standing? For the present? Or for the future?
