I have brought you glory on earth
by completing the work you gave me to do.
Crossing off the last item on your to-do list at the end of a busy day is a “whew” moment.
In the last full day of his life, Jesus checked all the boxes and said to his Father, “I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.”
Columnist Erma Bombeck said: “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I could say, ‘I used everything that you gave me.’”
“They left everything on the field” is a sports metaphor for they gave it all they had.
Leave it all on the field. Use everything God gives you. Glorify him by reaching the end of a busy life having completed the work he gave you to do.
Every talent comes with responsibility;
every opportunity with obligation.
