Leave a legacy

Psalms 37:37 “For the person of peace will have a posterity – a legacy.”

Purpose in life.  We all want to be known for making a difference in someone’s life, in our world, and in our community.  In the darkest of nights we wonder if what we do makes a difference to the God of the universe.  The evil one speaks to me and says, “No one cares if you are here or not.  You have been a failure.  You are worthless.  You will never work again.”  When I recognize this messenger, I have to scurry to a quiet place and repeat God’s promises to me over and over.

“I will never leave you or forsake you.  For I know the plans I have for you, plans to give you a future and a hope, says the Lord.  He knows the way I take and when He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold, says Job.”  My legacy is to show Christ to everyone I meet and people are watching.  Everything you do.  Everything you say.  You are leaving a legacy.

What legacy do you want to leave in this world?  When have you been a person of peace?  Of dissension?  What “posterity” or success in future generations will you leave?
