Dear Y.B.M.:

I am writing to you today about the end of your life. 

I read a book recently titled, "7 Habits of Highly Successful People." In that book, the author used the phrase: "Begin with the end in mind." When you think about it, that is a very powerful principle for all of us to take to heart. When you are lying in that grave, what would your life have meant? What worthwhile things would you have accomplished? What worthwhile things would you have left behind? May I encourage you, as that book encouraged me, to "begin with the end in mind". Here are some things that you can do each day so that you can have a good ending as well as a good beginning:

First, live each day with God in mind. A good way to do this is to pray every day, read your Bible every day, and meditate upon the Lord every day. I can honestly say that ever since I met the Lord Jesus Christ as my Saviour on December 19, 1979, the Lord has been on my mind.

Second, live with others in mind. Do not live a life of self-centeredness. Live a life for others -- helping others, serving others, caring for others, and pulling others out of the fire.

Third, live out your passion! Live out your passion! Live out your passion! Don’t allow yourself to get locked into something that God didn’t make you to do. Do only what God made you to do, do only what you love to do, and do it with all your might!
