Out of the Blue

It is quite windy around here at the moment, you can hear it battering things and occasionally rattling the windows. The forecast says winds are currently around 45 mph and there are gusts up to 55 mph, and there is a high wind warning that extends for more than the next 24 hours. The timing of this is not ideal, as we have a dumpster full of garbage and debris sitting out front right now, which has the potential to strew garbage all over. The good news is that most of the junk in there is too heavy to become airborne, but in looking out there, I cant help thinking some of the lighter stuff may already be out there exploring the world.

Like this line from Gladiator.

"Ultimately, we're all dead men. Sadly, we cannot choose how but, what we can decide is how we meet that end, in order that we are remembered, as men."

Bible stuff below, hidden for those who are apathetic to such things.

That line very much reminds me of Ecclesiastes 7:1, "A name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of one's being born." Someone may ask why the day of one's death would be better than the day of one's birth? Because at birth a person has no established reputation. Their personal slate is blank, and their life course will result in either a positive or a negative reputation. For those who have established a good name over the years, the day of death is indeed better in that respect than the day of birth.

Another line: "Brothers, what we do in life... echoes in eternity."

This is the same case with Jehovah. Having a good name with Him "in life" based on "what we do" results in "echoes in eternity" at death in remembering our deeds. Fascinating! Refreshing to find metaphor similarities between scripture and film. Thought you might find the comparison interesting.
