The Path to Legacy

By Dick Haden

Our current sermon series on Legacy got me thinking about my legacy.

Webster defines legacy as something received from someone who has died. The first thing that comes to mind is money or property – I received both of those things from my father and mother, but the greatest gift was their faith in God.

They planted my feet on a path to a relationship with Christ and they knew that to be meaningful. I am sure there were times when they felt compelled to push me in the right direction but instead they allowed me to find my way. For that I am grateful.

People worry about their legacy and look for ways to be remembered. Not all of us can be a George Washington or Abe Lincoln, but we can all share Christ’s love with our family, friends, and others.

There is not a better way to be remembered.
