The greatest legacy one can pass on to one’s children and grandchildren is . . . a legacy of character and faith. (Billy Graham)

Graham contrasted his statement with “[the legacy] is not money or other material things accumulated in one’s life.” Today it seems that the goal is to collect all of life’s material goods that you can: real estate, property, investments–all things you can enjoy and pass on to your heirs. Those things will pass away, but a good reputation and strong faith in God will last.

The godly walk with integrity; blessed are their children who follow them (Proverbs 20:79)
