The Measure of a Life

Recently I've watched as a good friend has dealt with the premature death of a college friend.  I had the pleasure of meeting the man once.  He was a good, godly man.  Through Facebook, I've seen as many people who knew him much better than I did have payed a tribute to him in their own way.  I've seen just how many lives he's touched during his abbreviated time on this Earth.

How do you measure a life?  It's not about what you have because possessions are temporary.  They won't follow your soul after death.  All that really matters is the life you've lead on Earth and the impact that you leave on those around you.  We only get one chance at life and we need to give it our all.
