The news is everywhere. Steve Jobs has breasted the tape at the end of this human race.
One thing is clear. He made his MARK. (Excuse my pun in the title.)
He was a genius whose creativity has helped to shape to shape mankind forever.
Men and women, boys and girls from all over the world will continue to shower encomiums of him for a long time to come, not because of the duration of his life but because of the impact that he made.
He lived and he changed the way millions of people live. He was not oblivious of the fact that life was an opportunity to give and not just to get.
Some have said, “Three APPLES changed the world. The first one tempted Eve, the second inspired Newton and the third was offered to the world half eaten by Steve Jobs.”
That Apple is Steve’s gift to us. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.
His life should inspire us to give also. First, we must give all that we have to God, the real owner and giver of all good things.
Next, we must give to those around us.
Thirdly, we must give to those yet unborn by pouring out all that God put in us through goods, products and services that will continue to live long after we breath our last.
In Steve’s words, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” That’s good advise, you’d agree.
Even in his death, Steve Jobs still speaks.
