Outlive Your Life

Many years ago I attended an event where I heard a woman discuss Matthew 25, particularly the passage where Jesus says, “I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink..”  The audience was chatty and restless. Yet when she entered the room, all stirring stopped.

She wore her characteristic white Indian sari with a blue border that represented the Missionaries of Charity, the order she had founded in 1950. Her years had bent her already small frame. But there was nothing small about Mother Teresa’s presence. “Give me your unborn children,” she offered. “Don’t abort them. If you cannot raise them, I will. They are precious to God.” I wonder if God creates people like Mother Teresa so he can prove his point– See, you can do something today that will outlive your life.
