In case you don’t know, I am a HUGE Mac fan. My entire computer world is connected to a Mac. I left the PC world several years ago and have never looked back.
Much of it has to do with how easy it is to use and how “it just works.”
I have grown to appreciate Steve Jobs and his genius as I have enjoyed his products. He had such an ability to look into the mind of the consumer and develop products that we wanted before we even new we wanted them.
He has left an imprint on our culture that will have long reaching effects. Years from now, people will be talking about Steve Jobs with the same reverence and/or disdain as we now speak of Walt Disney or Henry Ford.
He passed away today, October 5, 2011. After fighting cancer and a liver transplant, Jobs went on to grow a company to the wealthiest company in the world during the worst financial crisis since the great depression.
At one point, Apple had more cash in reserves than the entire US Government.
He has a legacy and one that will live on into the future. . . .
In my limited knowledge and study of Steve Jobs, I do not recall any mention or conversation about his eternal destiny. As I thought about the impact that he has had on many of our lives, my heart began to get heavy.
Is Steve in heaven?
Did he make the decision that really matters?
I pray for his family that they may be comforted. I pray that those close to his family will be able to share the love of Christ. I pray that the legacy left by Steve Jobs will be more than Apples and iPhones.
What will your legacy be?
