Legacy isn’t leaving something for people; it’s leaving something in people. (Greg Groeschel, leadership speaker)
When we begin to consider what we might leave our children, we’re usually thinking of estate issues: houses, personal property, and finances. Groeschel, however points out what is really so much more important. What kind of people will our heirs be? What have we helped develop in them that will have a beneficial impact on others?
[Those that fear the Lord] share freely and give generously to those in need. Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor. (Psalm 112:9)
