Why Legacy?

We only have One Life - One Legacy that we can leave behind. We will live one life and by our actions provide the written material for our legacy. However, it will truly be written and interpreted by others after we have left this world.

So I ask myself, and I ask you, what is the legacy which you desire to leave behind?What did you write today in the chapter entitled "today"? Did you advance toward your desired legacy, or did you retreat? What you will become is who you were today.

As I write this blog I will be simultaneously challenging myself, and I trust challenging my readers to leave a legacy that matters. One that challenges and changes those you encounter daily and on your journey in life. You have One Life - One Legacy - make it count!

What if?

What if you decided not to be comfortable?

What if you decided to do something radical with your life?

What if you determined that mediocrity was no longer an option but that you would live a radical life for Christ?

What if you decided to sell everything and go to the mission field?

What if you concluded that you were to adopt and had to down-size to do so?

What if you practiced extreme evangelism - bringing a child into your home for a life-time?

Would you live with regret? I don't think so!

What if you decided to live safe, live comfortable, never risk anything?

What if you went along with the majority of humanity and lived a selfish life?

What if you stored away a great retirement and never gave a dime away to bless others?

At the end of life: would you have lived a life filled with regret? I think so!

Just sayin.....
