What Legacy will you Leave?
According to the Merriam-Wester Dictionary, legacy is 'something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past.'
Sure, this can be the financial gift you receive from a deceased loved one.
It could also be the special membership status that you enjoy within an institution or organization thanks to
In many cases, it's the memory that you leave behind.
How will people remember you?
What stories will people share?
Which footsteps will people want to follow?
I'm currently in the process of molding my legacy into something positive.
But I can't help but to think about the negative seeds I've sown. Stop judging me! We have ALL sown a negative seed a time or two.
It's like the Samaritan woman Jesus found at the well in John chapter 4. In verse 16, Jesus tested her. How honest would she be with Him? In verse 17, the Samaritan woman was honest about one thing. But there was much more to her story. To her truth. In verse 18, Jesus revealed all that He knew about her. He told her about her secrets. The legacy she was leaving behind.
The same way He knew her secrets, He knows your secrets.
Even if we hide from man, we cannot hide from God. He sees ALL and He knows ALL.
Thank goodness that He forgives ALL!
I don't want those skeletons from yesterday to come out of the closet and ruin my good deeds from today.
Although I can't change the past, I can most certainly impact the future.
I hope you will join me in building up future generations. Their legacies begin today. Together, let's help them to avoid skeletons. Let's help them by encouraging them to sow positive seeds.
Can I count on you to join me in legacy building?
