AbstractThere are many ways to describe a life of insignificance. My favorite is the
image of a bucket of water: Stick your hand in it and pull it back out, and the
dent you leave in the water indicates one’s significance. But we all want more
than that. We want our lives to count. Neither possessions nor positions
guarantee lasting significance. Athaliah had all of these and yet her life was a
living tragedy. She did evil, and the Bible records no lasting good that
resulted from her life. What can we do today to leave a significant impact? How
can we avoid becoming a living tragedy?
