Legacy


121212

Have you ever gone to write out a check and thought….
what is today’s date?
Well today is a day that you may not have that thought.
Thank you social media for reminding us that today’s date is December 12, 2012…
also known as 12/12/12.

Today is the only time 12/12/12 will appear on the calendar…
but then again.. isn’t that the way it always is.

There was only one…
12/07/41.
There was only one…
04/24/1980.
There was only one…
09/11/01.

The dates listed above are dates that we will never forget.
Well… dates that I will never forget.
The second date is my date of birth… feel free to insert yours in there.
The other two dates are major historical dates.
Pearl Harbor.
The World Trade Center attack.

Days come and days go.
But something that will never go away is legacy.
Legacy is simply something that is handed down from the past.

I believe that we all have something to hand down to future generations.
A thought.
A belief.
A desire.
A love.

I have posted my favorite verse on here in the past…
it is Ephesians 5:2.
Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ.
He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.

This is my favorite verse because it states what I want my legacy to be.
Love.
Example.
Christ.

So today I ask you…
What legacy are you leaving?

It’s a legacy that cannot be procrastinated…
It must be lived… 
Everyday.

Go out and do something that will make you never forget…
12/12/12.
