A lasting legacy
“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3
Do you ever think about your legacy? Do you ever wonder what you will leave behind that will be remembered by those who remain after you are gone? People invest their time and energy in many things, hoping it will be something that will keep their memory alive. People will leave endowments, they will start scholarship funds in their name, so that something of theirs will be left behind after they are gone. On a smaller scale, parents will invest so that their children will receive something of value after the parents are gone. But, as sincere as the motives might be, none of these things will last eternally. The Bible is clear on where to invest if we want to leave a lasting memory, if we want to leave something that will last for eternity: invest in the work of the Lord. Invest in turning others to Him. The work a person does in the name of the Lord will far outlast anything else they may do. According to God’s promise, a work for Him is the only work that will last into eternity. Create a legacy by turning others to the truth that is found in God and His word. Create a legacy by investing in the eternal souls of people.
