The Power of Words

Proper 29, Year B, Old Testament
Scripture: 2 Samuel 23:1-3

Final words carry power. Think back over your life and see if you can call to mind the last thing someone important said to you before they were no longer a part of your life. You remember, don’t you? Last words are important because they are our last opportunity to shape things or make an impression. It’s only human to wish that we could know when we were going to speak our last words, so we could make sure to say something profound. We could make sure someone was there to record and share our words with others. David uses his last words to make sure that we are reminded of the promises of God. If you could choose, what would you want to say with your last words?
