Leave a Lasting Legacy

This weeks encouragement has excerpts borrowed from and old but very timely article "Family Legacies", from Focus on the Family.

No matter who we are, where we live, or what our goals may be, we all have one thing in common: a heritage. That is, a social, emotional and spiritual legacy passed on from parent to child. Every one of us is passed a heritage, lives out a heritage, and gives a heritage to our family. It’s not an option. Parents always pass to their children a legacy … good, bad or some of both.

A spiritual, emotional and social legacy is like a three-stranded cord. Individually, each strand cannot hold much weight. But wrapped together, they are strong. That’s why passing on a positive, affirming legacy is so important and why a negative legacy can be so destructive. You can decide to pass a positive legacy on to your children whether you received one or not.

Today, if we don’t intentionally pass a legacy consistent with our beliefs to our children, our culture will pass along its own, often leading to a negative end. It is important to remember that passing on a spiritual, emotional and social legacy is a process, not an event. As parents, we are responsible for the process.

It is one thing to say that our child's education is important, but something totally different to takes steps in ensuring that our children truly understand the meaning of what we say, and working to support them throughout the journey.

Building a great legacy is hard work. It is with this in mind that we build children, character, and community everyday. Thank you for allowing us to partner with you as we build futures for a lifetime not just a few years.

Building Children, Character, and Community Everyday

“A hundred years from now it will not matter, what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove; but the world would be different because I was important in the life of a child.”
