Proverbs 20:7 – “A righteous person lives on the basis of his integrity. Blessed are his children after he is gone.”

jhsOver the last weeks, I’ve been reflecting on the life of a dear friend, Attorney John Shannon.  John practiced law for over 30 years, serving the public as an advocate. Tragically, he was killed in a private plane crash on Christmas eve.

John ended his practice in the right place. I am sure like all of us, John had his good times and bad. His service to God was not always exactly on the level that he would be happy with. But so is the case for all of us.

In examination of our lives, we have not always been on the mountaintop. But for John, he ended his life on fire for God. He used his cookie and pie gifts to open the door for his chances to share the love of God. He would share gifts of religious coins/medallions to share the good news of encouragement and the love of Christ.

What was John’s legacy? He shared the love of Christ.

I pray that the world remembers me like my friend John.

Live in John’s Legacy. Live in the love of Christ.

Have a blessed day!
