Happy Saturday my friends!
I was thinking about legacies earlier this week. And what sort of legacy I'd want to leave. You see, this train of thought was brought on by the death of probably the best Sunday School teacher I've had in my adult life. And so I got to thinking.
I started to think about my family and the legacies my father and grandparents have left. Those who know me, know how dad shaped my life. And how I am probably more independent than most women. Yet my faith was also shaped by my parents and grandparents. You see, my grandfather on my mom's side was a man of faith. And he raised his children that way. And they in turn are raising (or have raised) his grandchildren to know and understand what it means to be a Christian.
There are both good and bad legacies to leave. The question is, what do you want to be known for? Do you want to be known for what you do for the kingdom of God? Or maybe you'd rather be known for your stand on something else? If you've not thought about it, think about it. What are you doing today that will impact future generations?
By the way, Happy Father's Day out there.
