Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice. Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever. Psalm 112:5-6 (NIV)
All of us want our lives to matter even after we die. This is simply considered leaving a legacy. Your legacy is where your life lives on after you die.
To form a strong legacy while you are still here, consider two pillars: Giving your life, time, talents and resources to something that will outlive you. The second is living so your life outlives you.
Giving does not only mean money – though that may be your first thought. Giving of your time to make a difference in someone else’s life has much further impact.
Living your life to make an impact, doing good things, or leaving a mark on someone’s heart are memories that far exceed a lifetime.
So, who??? Who can you serve? Whose life can you impact? Can God use you to mark someone’s heart beyond your lifetime?
Your next step? Put it into action!
