A legacy is that which a person leaves behind to be remembered by. It is more than just the memory of a person’s profession, successes or failures; it is the memory of the themes that governed that person’s life.
The reality is that every single one of us will leave behind some sort of legacy when we are gone, whether it’s the end of a season or our life as whole.
I believe the quality of the legacy we leave for the next generation is directly determined by how big we really believe God is.
If we choose to live a life that extends beyond just ourselves and beyond today, then we are showing a generation there is Someone big and grand Who is worth living and giving our lives for. In other words, the bigger God is to us, the bigger our legacy!
How big do you believe God is?
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)
