A Quick Question About Your Legacy

Good morning, sweet friends! I’ve just gotta tell you that you all bless me more than words can say! The way you encourage me and one another is a beautiful thing and I’m so thankful to know you, even if it is only through cyberspace. 🙂

Today and tomorrow, I’d love for you to pop over to Scripture Dig and visit us there. We are all sharing a little bit about our mothers and I know you’ll love how different our mothers are. Yet, as I read over the other’s mothers, I saw a little of mine in each – I think you will too.

I also want to apologize for running behind in announcing the winner of Penny Zeller‘s new book, Kaydie. She’ll be doing the drawing, so as soon as I know, I’ll be sure to announce it! That means, until I do announce it…you can still leave a comment about her interview for a chance to win!

So today, I just want to leave you with something to consider as we approach Mother’s Day –

What kind of legacy are you leaving?

Since I’ve been preparing to speak about it at an event this coming weekend, I can’t help but think about how we don’t think about the legacy we leave behind with each choice we make along the way.

Look at what Proverbs 4:25-26 says in the Amplified:

“Let your eyes look right on [with fixed purpose], and let your gaze be straight before you. Consider well the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established and ordered aright.”

Fix your purpose, dear one! Every step you take leads others somewhere. So, let the footsteps you take today be made with a fixed purpose to leave a legacy that will point others to the Savior’s feet!

Love y’all!

  1. I am concerned about the legacy I will leave. This is not the first time I have been challenged with this. Since my children, my step-children, and my grandchildren were not raised in Christian homes, I think the best legacy I can leave is to be faithful to our Lord, Jesus Christ, in whatever years I have remaining on earth. Faithful example, faithful in my faith, faithful in my words, faithful in my behavior, etc., etc.

  2. jean.e.lane ~ I wish I was more cognizant of the daily choices I make that are the makings of the legacy I'm leaving. I love that you used the word “faithful”! May it be so – – – for all of us!
