sphere of influence.

20 Elisha died and was buried.
Now Moabite raiders used to enter the country every spring. 21 Once while some Israelites were burying a man, suddenly they saw a band of raiders; so they threw the man's body into Elisha's tomb. When the body touched Elisha's bones, the man came to life and stood up on his feet. (2 Kings 13)

I think it's wonderful that God would continue to work even after Elisha's death; a man was raised from the dead simply by being placed in Elisha's tomb. I want God to work in my life in such a way, where people who are just placed in my proximity would be affected by the love and life of God. :) Even when I die, I hope that I leave a legacy; not that I want to be famous, but I just hope that when I die those who I've left behind would know that I lived for God and perhaps be influenced by that. :)
