spotlight: moving memoir of an aged saint

Pallbearer1

These are moving and poignant words from a good friend:

They filed in, wearing their dark suits – jackets buttoned – red carnations and all in a row. Their gray hair was uniform from man to man. Some had turned loose of their gray over the years, and their balding heads were interspersed in the group.

Two rows of men sat in all. The pews holding decades of friendship between them, the red cushions giving rest to the feet who shared so many journeys in life with the other souls around them.

They came in just before the family, these pall bearers.

Mason, thanks for reminding us that godliness does not consist of sustained airtime on a basketball court, radio station, or television screen – godliness is sustained devotion to Christ for a lifetime.

May God make us both, make us all, such men and women.

. . . . . .

Who has taught you the most about finishing the Christian life well?
