Who will cry at your funeral?

Acts 9:36-39 (NIV)

In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which, when translated, is Dorcas), who was always doing good and helping the poor. 37About that time she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upstairs room. 38Lydda was near Joppa; so when the disciples heard that Peter was in Lydda, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Please come at once!”

39Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.

What will you be remembered for after you have left this world?

Will it be your job? Your position in your church? Your money?

Or will it be a piece of clothing that warms a homeless person?

Or a meal when there’s no food on a family’s table?

Will you be remembered for granting hope where none could be found?

Who will cry at your funeral?
