What is Your Legacy?

Colorful spotlights shining on an empty stage

What is your legacy? How would you like to be remembered? Have you taken some time to think about what true success really is and what it looks like when the time comes to make the transition back to God’s realm?

Will you be remembered for your wonderful example, kind word, and many deeds of service or will your loved ones remember that you never had time, always complained about life and did your best to make others miserable?

Life always gives us the choice to be the molder of our lives. Here’s a story to inspire you!:

About a hundred years ago, a man looked at the morning newspaper and to his surprise and horror, read his name in the obituary column. The news papers had reported the death of the wrong person by mistake. His first response was shock. Am I here or there? When he regained his composure, his second thought was to find out what people had said about him. The obituary read, “Dynamite King Dies.” And also “He was the merchant of death.” This man was the inventor of dynamite and when he read the words “merchant of death,” he asked himself a question, “Is this how I am going to be remembered?” He got in touch with his feelings and decided that this was not the way he wanted to be remembered. From that day on, he started working toward peace. His name was Alfred Nobel and he is remembered today by the great Nobel Prize.

Just as Alfred Nobel got in touch with his feelings and redefined his values, we should step back and do the same.
