Legacy:  something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past legacy of the ancient philosophers  (www.merriam-webster.com)

I want to leave a legacy for my children.  Not a legacy of riches.  Not a “good” name.  Not even a standard of behavior to pattern their lives after.  I want my children to know how to commit themselves to family, love those who are unloved, and realize their purpose in life.   Most of all, I want my children to grow up in a home full of Christ.  But, how?

Even with all of my good intentions, how can I pass on such lofty concepts when I can’t live up to them myself?  It all begins with sharing the truth of Christ.

Feel free to join me these next two weeks as we explore ways to leave our children with a legacy that lasts more than a lifetime.

Scripture for reflection  Listen, dear friends, to God’s truth, bend your ears to what I tell you.  I’m chewing on the morsel of a proverb;  I’ll let you in on the sweet old truths,  Stories we heard from our fathers,  counsel we learned at our mother’s knee.  We’re not keeping this to ourselves,  we’re passing it along to the next generation—  God’s fame and fortune,  the marvelous things he has done Psalm 78:1-4
