We are called to be legacy leaders. God Has called you to great things. Your legacy is not about how much money/assets you leave your family. It’s about leaving a legacy of YOU. The years you will be most remembered for are the last 20-30 years of your life. Were you able to be present, healthy, and life-giving in those years? Or was your family burdened and left alone because all of the “Grind” has caught up with you.
I have experienced this first-hand. My grandparents exemplify what it means to be legacy leaders. They built the business, have the investment properties, take us on great vacations. BUT they didn’t sacrifice their health and family for it.
They have poured into me. I won’t remember them by the money, properties, and gifts left behind. I honestly could care less. They will be remembered by how present they were in every interaction.
-Every football game they were able to come to because they were in good health.
-Every wedding they were apart of. (My grandpa was my best men)
-Every lesson we learned while working on their property.
Your family doesn’t want you to build an amazing life while sacrificing your health. They want you to live long and be present for them in the future. Money is not your legacy. YOU are your legacy. The memories you leave. The lessons you teach. The example you set. The character you pour into your kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids.
Your legacy starts now. God has called you to great things. What do you want your legacy to be?
