As a leader, I believe you should leave your mark! I have a saying: “You haven’t lived until you have left a legacy in the earth.” I call this “Legacy Living”.
Legacy Living is all about touching humanity, through the use of your life, gifts, and talents, on behalf of God and His Kingdom. I believe each and every person who enters this side of heaven has the potential to leave a rich legacy. Your life itself should stand as a memorial for God for the entire world to see! When coupled with the fruits of your gifts and talents, you should, in no uncertain terms, leave an indelible mark upon the lives of men now, and possibly throughout eternity. For instance, the great Apostle Paul is dead and gone, but his writings are still touching lives today. Not only today, but also what he has deposited in the earth has become a part of our spirits and will stay with us throughout eternity. Wow!
I want to challenge you from this point on to make it your goal to leave a legacy. Don’t let your gifts and talents stay locked up inside you to be carried to your grave. Live your life to the fullest, by loving and serving others. Make your mark on the heart of humanity, and those in your sphere of influence. Embrace Legacy Living wholeheartedly. Here are a few ways you can leave your mark:
- Plant a tree
- Start a business
- Build a community
- Create an invention
- Teach and build others
- Cure a disease or social ill
- Live righteously before others
- Create a new service or product
- Start a foundation, charity or ministry
- Write a book, song, screenplay, etc.
- Run for a public office and create positive change
