I recently heard a dialogue that made me sit up and think.
This guy says : " Legacy is not just what we leave behind when we go, it's everything we share with the ones we love the most." (God friended me, Amazon Prime).
It's such a deep thought when you think about it.
My legacy is not a mere whiff of a memory or two.
My legacy is what I'm making in the present.
And this holds a place of honour in the future, if we're lucky.
Legacy is my senior pastor carrying a heavy Christmas decoration to help out.
Legacy is all the unsung volunteers that make the service happen from the shadows.
Legacy is S waking up at unearthly hours to make it to worship team sound check.
Legacy is the 15 yr old waking up really early and doing the same.
Legacy is M composing songs late into the night, in the quiet of his room.
Legacy is the 11 yr old shyly penning down sweet words to an unnamed poem.
Legacy is M giving money to a random stranger in a foreign airport.
Legacy is D sauntering to hand over a tip to our awkward server.
Legacy is S mending fences with a friend, for Peace's sake.
Legacy is M girl playing peace maker between quarrelling friends.
Legacies are an everyday habit.
Legacies are hard work.
Legacies are made by ordinary people who live ' just an extra mile'.
Legacies are what we do in the now, not just what we leave behind.
