The memory of the righteous is a blessing.
                              —Proverbs 10:7

I recently came across this quiz. See how you score.

  • Name the ten wealthiest people in the world.
  • Name the last ten Heisman Trophy winners.
  • Name ten people who have won the Nobel Prize.
  • Name the last ten Academy Award winners for best picture.

How’d you do? Me neither—I flunked every category. These were tops in their fields. How quickly fame fades and how quickly we forget the famous.

I do better in other categories. I bet you do too. Give it a try.

  • Name two teachers who made a difference in your life.
  • Name two people who helped you through a difficult time.
  • Name two people who taught you something valuable.
  • Name two people who you’re always glad to see.

Those who make a difference in our lives are not the celebrities but the concerned.

Be that someone for someone.
