Leaving a Legacy
Many years ago, I attended the funeral of my cousin Sammie. It was a moving memorial service, but what really impacted me the most was the large audience who came to pay their respects. The testimonials that people gave for my cousin also revealed to me that he made a great impact in the lives of many people. My cousin left behind a great legacy.
Making an Impact
What is it that you want to be remembered for after you die? All of us wish to leave behind a legacy that will have a lasting impact on those that we leave behind. For a servant of God, we wish to be remembered for being faithful servants to our Lord and Savior. However, if a Christian looks carefully at the things that they have already done, they would notice that the thing they will be remembered the most will not be of following the Lord’s will.
A Godly Legacy
What should the legacy of a child of God look like? In the YouTube video below, I read from the devotional “The NIV Once a Day Devotional for Men,” and discuss how we can leave behind a God-honoring legacy. Let us take the heart the words that are inspired by the Words of God and proceed to pursue a life that will make a lasting impact for the King of Kings.
