Serving to Leave a Legacy

Some people serve and go through the motions without a great, compelling purpose that fuels their reason for serving.

And then there those who serve with the understanding that they have an opportunity to leave a legacy.

We all want to leave a legacy of some kind. We want to know that our time and efforts helped the kids and families in our ministry.

What does it mean to leave a legacy? It means you make a contribution to future generations. You send a message to a day you will never see. You live your life through the perspective of leaving a life-changing message that will outlive you and will impact the future.

I'm sure we share this in common. We want to be able to put a stamp on the future. We want to know that our serving investment made a difference in the lives of others.

We must remember that leaving a legacy is not primarily about leaving money. It's not what you leave for the next generation. It's about what you leave in the next generation.

Do you want to leave a legacy? Let's talk about some specific steps you can take to do that.

  • Determine what you want your legacy to be.

  • Start living out what you want your legacy to be.

  • Make decisions with your legacy in mind.

  • See your life as a relay race. You are running your part of the race while holding a baton in your hand. You are preparing to hand your baton over to the next generation...the next runner.
