Yesterday we reviewed the idea of finishing…specifically, being clear on exactly what it is we are finishing [read here].
Today I want you to reflect on whether or not you have any unfinished business.
History records that when the famed Italian painter Raphael (1483-1520) died, there was carried in the funeral procession his last picture…not yet completed.
In Sir Walter Scott’s home in Abbotsford, Scotland, you can read his last diary entry, he wrote, “Tomorrow we shall…” The entry was never concluded. He died as he was writing.
Franz Schubert left us the great Unfinished Symphony.
Charles Dickens laid down his pen for the last time in the midst of a novel, and ever since people have speculated as to how that novel might have ended. Nobody knows.
Even the Apostle Paul, who “finished his course” was still making plans for the future, setting up meetings and asking for books to be sent to him (2 Timothy 4:9-13).
The ONE THING for today: Finish your life with unfinished business. Or put anther way, die trying at least one more thing.
