Leaving a Legacy
Dictionary.com defines legacy as;
a gift of property, especially personal property, as money, by will; a bequest.
Here at Legacy Ministries Canada we are working hard every day to educate and help people with things like financial counseling, estates & will planning, church & ministry support, DAF manage, investing and so much more. We feel these things are very important to believers and we want to help educate people on how they can leave a financial legacy for the generations to come.
However, we also care deeply about a spiritual Legacy. We all know stories of 3rd or 4th generation missionaries, or ministry that were started by a grandparent, handed down to a parent and now run by a 3rd generation family member. Or maybe a legacy of a mother leading her young child to Christ and getting to witness that child as a parent leading there young one to Christ.
Whether you are working towards leaving a financial legacy, a spiritual legacy or both, let us remember the words of Christ as he has called us all to this;
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
May all our hearts be challenged today to go out and do the work of the Lord and to follow his example and commands as he as laid them out for us in the scriptures.
