132 Pictures

I had lunch with a guy today and he said something that really got me thinking. His name is Bob and he was telling me about a video that he made for a family friend whose young adult son had died unexpectedly. The video was pretty basic — just a series of pictures set to music.

As Bob told me the story he said something like, “It’s amazing what is important when your life is reduced to 132 pictures. There aren’t a lot of pictures of your report card, SAT score, cars, big houses, or stuff like that. When your life is described with 132 pictures what matters are pictures of people that you loved and served.”

Scripture says that life is a vapor (James 4:14). Your life and mine will, someday, be reduced to 132 pictures. Don’t waste it.
