I have personally never been a fan of funerals. Well, not that there are ‘fans’ of them cause we don’t really have a choice but i am always the first to look for the slightest excuse not to attend them. This is mostly because i am tired of the clichés whenever people have to speak of the deceased. It just sickens me up!

Some time ago, I attended the funeral of one of my friend’s friend. As I sat with his friends, co-workers, and family members in the chapel, I listened as one by one they took turns saying a few words in tribute. The final person to speak was the gentleman’s best friend who happens to be my close friend too. He stood up and said, “The most fitting tribute to our friend is that there are no conflicting reports today about what kind of man he was.”

Wow!!! That took me by surprise. Not only were those words POWERFUL but they were in-sync with the Scripture. Most people did not realize that.

I’ve thought about those words often since that day at the funeral. What if that could be said about me? What if I could live my life loving God and loving others with such authenticity that when I reach the end, there will be no conflicting reports?

1st John 1:5-6 says ‘God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.’

The Bible makes it clear that in Him there is no darkness. May our lives be held up to His light every day so there can be no conflicting reports about how we say we live and how we really live.

Let’s ask God to show us any inconsistencies in our lives and our relationships. Make it your prayer that you get to the end of this day and the end of your life with no darkness and no conflicting reports.
