When your life is
over, everything you did will be represented by a single dash between two
dates—what will that dash mean for the people you have known and loved?
As Joseph Epstein once said, “We do not choose to be born.
We do not choose our parents, or the country of our birth. We do not, most of
us, choose to die … But despite the limited control we have, we do choose how
we live.” And that is what The Dash
is all about.
Beginning with an inspiring poem by Linda Ellis titled The Dash, renowned author Mac Anderson
then applies his own signature commentary on how the poem motivates us to make
certain choices in our lives—choices to ignore the calls of selfishness and
instead reach out to others, using our God-given abilities to brighten their
days and lighten their loads.
After all, at the end of life, how we will be
remembered—whether our dash represents a full, joyous life of seeking God’s
glory, or merely the space between birth and death—will be entirely up to the
people we’ve left behind, the lives we’ve changed. Download and start listening now!
