What wisdom to discern when an actor like Christopher Plummer passes on in life?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: He Was a Mighty Force, reported the death of Christopher Plummer and included this statement.

“Plummer once called the 1965 film version of “The Sound of Music,” the movie that made him famous worldwide,”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom verse to the question to discern what role in life we all may be remembered for in our lives.

King Solomon

The memory of the righteous is a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot. (Proverbs 10:7)


“We Israelites also believe that the meaning of each star in the sky to be a spirit of a righteous ancestor. The larger and brighter the star, the more righteous were the deeds of the ancestor. As a bright light in a home indicates that someone is home, so does a star shine brightly as if to signal to us that the righteous deeds remain with us. There will be no lamp or shining stars for the wicked. Their deeds of darkness in life will be extinguished and forgotten in time when they die.” The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked goes out. “(Proverb 13:9)

What’s My Point?

When we hear of the death of a movie star like Christopher Plummer, most people may remember him for a role in played in a movie.

The article mentioned numerous roles in life Christopher acted in, but of all the movies, the one most people will remember will be the 1965 role he played in the Sound of Music as a righteous brave father of a brood of talented children which still delights families and audiences to this day.

My point is when it pertains to families or friends, we all will be remembered for our roles as a member in this world.

In My Opinion

The explanation of the Excerpt of Proverb 13:9 will be applicable to everyone.

You Decide

What starring role in our lives will have been our most memorable when our time to pass on is remembered?

Will we have be considered “a mighty force” to have served to bless or rot our roles we starred during our limited time in this world?

Will being remembered as being righteousness result in being a bigger star to brighten up our roles in life?
