What's Your Legacy?

"It's about who you've lifted up, who you've made better. It's about what you've given back." — Denzel Washington

                               Do you remember how important it was to you to get your yearbook signed back in high school?  We all wanted those blank pages filled up with memories from our friends.  We wanted to see that we had made a mark in others lives in those fast four years.
                              What about the mark we leave during the rest of our lives, the majority of our years?  You will be remembered most by how you treated people, more than what you said or did.  Maybe that's why God commands us to 'love one another' because it matters most in a purpose driven life for Christ.
                             When I think of my own funeral, I would like all the attendees to have their own special 'I remember when' moment in their minds.  My life accomplishments are more my own memories but a legacy is more about the impact that one has in other's lives.  Recently, I've been blessed by others telling me how my life has encouraged or strengthened their lives..... AND THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.
