Do you care about your legacy? I think this is an important question. As I navigate through this Christian walk, I often think—God, what legacy will I leave behind? Should I even worry about it?
Well, when you look at all of the different figures in the Bible like King David, and King Saul, we see the legacies they left behind. Although one king left behind a less than stellar one, we still speak of King Saul to this day, by using him as an example of what not to do regarding our walk with God. So with that being said, I believe God does care about the legacy and memories we leave behind. Aren’t we a reflection of him?
So Saul and his three sons and his armor-bearer and all his men died together that same day.~ 1 Samuel 31:6
Wow! Look at that! Yes, Saul was tall, handsome, and charming, but that meant nothing to God. Because he refused to obey God, he lost his life, which resulted in a terrible legacy for him and his family!
If you took a look at your life today, what would it look like? Have you been the nicest person? Have you helped others? Have you been a good mother? Have you been a good partner? Most importantly, have you been living life for God?
My point in writing this article is to get you to look at how you are spending your time and with whom? What and who is your God? Is it God (Jesus) is it something or someone else?
Wherever you may be right now in life, I want to encourage you to think about how you want to be remembered. What will your kids say about you? Most importantly what would God Say and would he be pleased on judgment day?
Remember, be fearless and be fierce! 💪🏽💜
