How would your life been rated if you died today?

How suddenly and totally unexpectedly ones life can change forever- or find themselves in eternity.

This is an example from my life when I was rear-ended by a pickup truck that was racing another after they crested a hill just behind me. (10-1990) By God's grace I crawled out of the burning wreckage with only scratches.


How would you rate your life if it were totaled up right now? (Score each category 0-10)

Score it (A): Relative to all of human existence/history (best we can surmise all things considered)- that is, the big picture of all that have ever lived.

Score it again (B): Relative/compared to those born in modern America (Since the end of WW2, say 1946)

Here are 5 categories, at a possible 10 points each (X2) compared to (A) All human existence, and (B) those born in modern America- possible 100 points total.


1. Happy and most fulfilling life, happiness, contentment, belonging and acceptance, friends, loneliness or love experienced, over all satisfaction with life- (matters of the heart) (may not be relative to factors of physical circumstances such as listed below).

2. Blessings verses Struggles- (all your physical matters inherited or experienced), includes: amount of freedom, wars suffered, government oppressions, handicaps,injuries, unpreventable loses,, imprisonments, intelligence, wealth, health, food, comforts, circumstances, and length of life, etc.

3. Opportunities and/or blessings afforded you: country born into, family born into, time in history, natural talents, intelligence, wealth, or gifts etc.

4. Use you made of your circumstances or blessings, success Vs failure, (relative to 2 a 3 above)

5. Possible effects of your life positive or negative- if any,(especially long range) , value or contribution to society or the world.

6.BONUS QUESTION(Extra- Not part of above score) FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST, faith in God, Peace with God, relationship with God, having pleased or served God, fear of God, confidence at His judgment, amount of sin, concern to serve and love Him/others, time involved and effort toward same. e.g.: "Treasures laid up in Heaven" (This #6 category pertains to those who hold this faith/belief) Most who hold these beliefs would probably feel that this category is the only one which really matters and therefore makes all the other 5 irrelevant to the value of ones life- and therefore must/should be scored independently of the others.
