Have I written in the snow?#

It pays to audit the heart, and all its ruminations.

Here is a good searching question for a man to enquire of himself as he reviews his past life:

Have I written in the snow? Will my life-work endure the lapse of time and the fret of change? Has there been anything immortal in it, which will survive the speedy wreck of sublunary things? The boys inscribe their names in capitals in the snow, and in the morning's thaw the writing disappears. Will it be so with my work, or will the characters that I have carved out last the brazen tablets of history?

If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. (1 Corinthians 3:12-14)

The Last Word:

Have I merely written in the snow?
