Leaving Your Legacy
My wife's grandmother passed away this week and the service was today. Ina Bowlin was a woman who was a pillar of faith to her family and many others including my life. She was an encouragement to me and as I saw her overcome trials and adversities it strengthened my faith. The legacy she left was an eternal legacy of faith, hope in the lives of others, and most of all love. Faith. Hope. Love. It has made me think about the legacy that I want to leave. What do I want to be remembered for? What kind of person? What kind of memories? Then I've thought, do we think enough about the legacy we are leaving? Should we think about our legacy more? I know I need to be doing so and am inspired to strive to do so. A legacy of faith, hope, love. Imagine what kind of world we would live in if every believer strived to leave that kind of legacy? How the church would be if we focused our efforts on those three things. Faith. Hope. Love. So, what legacy my friends do you want to leave? What are you doing to leave that kind of legacy behind?
