“The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
We lead people. We do it in church. We do it in community. We lead people.
What do we leave behind?
We work tirelessly. We leave a trail of blood, sweat and tears behind. We put in long hours and endless days. We end up doing much more than we ever make out of any of what we are given. We do a lot and end up with little to show for it.
You need to leave a legacy behind. You need to be sure to train your replacement and take him or her under your wing. Make an impact in your community. Make a difference in this world. Take the opportunity to leave a legacy behind. Plant seeds today that will lead to a bountiful harvest in the future.
The backslider in heart will be filled with the fruit of his ways, and a good man will be filled with the fruit of his ways. – Proverbs 14:14 (ESV)
