How do you hope to be remembered someday? Whether it’s your children, family, co-workers, or the person you met one time, what would you like them to remember about you?
I know I’ll be remembered differently depending on how close I was to that person. For example, my daughter will remember me in personal ways from our time spent together, while a co-worker might only remember me from the office environment.
As I’ve thought about this, I’ve realized that the greatest legacy I can leave my family, friends, or someone I meet once in my lifetime is my faith.
Legacy, by definition, is something handed down or received, often from an ancestor or predecessor. Among the synonyms for legacy is gift. (dictionary.com)
The greatest legacy or gift I can leave to others is the way in which I live out my faith—everyday, with everyone.
