What is Your Legacy

Toward the end of any U.S. president’s tenure, there is ongoing talk about his legacy, how he will be remembered.  Financial planners will talk about your legacy in terms of the inheritance you leave to your children.  The Bible has a different view of what is important in terms of a legacy.  Look at the following passages:
What is Your Legacy?

  • Exodus 20:5
  • Exodus 34:7
  • Numbers 14:18
  • Deuteronomy5:9
  • Psalm 127:3 – 4
  • Proverbs 8:32
Legacy in the Lord’s view is what happens with your kids.  In the New Testament how a man builds into his children’s lives is a qualification for leadership, I have written about that here.

So while how you are remembered and what you leave behind are measures, they seem to be flawed, perhaps shaped by the molding of the world.  What seems to be important is the foundation you lay in your children’s lives that lasts from generation to generation.
