Andrew Jackson, the 7th US President was the first President to have his photo taken. No one alive today has seen the face of any of the first 6 Presidents.
No matter how popular you are, there will eventually come a time when there will be no living person who knew you or saw your face. That time may be 100 years from now, but, should the Lord delay His return, there will come a time when every person you now know will have grown old and died. When that time comes, what impact will your life have had on the world? Will it make any difference that you ever lived?
There is a way you can spend your time today that will make a difference. If you are a Christian, investing in the advancement of the Gospel or in passing on a Godly heritage to your descendants will make a difference.
The most powerful man on earth cannot stop time. But we can redeem the time.
