What Makes A Good Legacy?

How important is one's legacy? What is it that we should leave behind? In this bustling world it's easy to forget about the trail you are leaving behind you as you walk this life.

I see a Mama who is in the winter of her time. Her children they have fallen apart....They can't seem to get it right. They fight and quarrel around her fragile heart. Consumed by their hatred toward one another. It has blinded them to the point where they can't see the tears their dear Mama is crying. They can't see her heart breaking piece by piece, bit by bit. They don't realize how close it is to the shattering point.

I can't help but wonder.....I can't help but question the legacy that is being created. What happens when a legacy is created by hate and selfishness? What happens when the next generation is looking upon the shattered pieces?

I question their hearts and why they can't seem to put all of this a side. Let their Mama live the last of her moments in peace.......in happiness. For if they truly loved her, they would pull together at such a time as this and show their children, (her grandchildren) what it means to be a loving, forgiving family. One that can go through the hardness of life, then join together in unity and make the soft memorable moments. Those moments that make you smile. Those moments that all too soon become memories. The ones that grow you and make you strong. The ones that help mold you. And you are better because of them.

I pray and I pray for hard hearts to be softened.......No one wants to end this life in regrets. No one in their right mind wants to go out saying I was right and they were wrong.......Hate is not a legacy, selfishness is not a legacy, Pride is not a legacy.......Being right is not a legacy.

Loving, Living, Forgiving, Humble, Gracious, Honest, Faithful, Unselfish, Kind, these are what make a good legacy, a Great legacy....One that helps mend shattered hearts down your lineage line.

I pray for a miracle because that's what it's gonna take to put this family back together again. And He is in the business of making and creating miracles.

Lord this family needs you NOW!!!!!

Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates

This is where Great Legacies come from, they come from the Lord.
