Why do we so easily trade our moments of time for trivial things of no lasting value? Why do we struggle so hard to accumulate wood, hay, and stuble which will one day fade away? I am determined to be intentional about how I spend all my moments. I will insist that my heart, my mind, my thought, my relationships, and all my efforts line up with the Word of God and His eternal will. What will I leave behind when my time here is done? What will be the sum of my life? I can answer that now. There will be no sum and no limit because the eternal work of my God will have no end. It cannot be measured or contained. He will receive what I have offered humbly to Him and He will bless and multiply it for His glory. My grandmother knows that now. She sincerely loved the Lord, but I often felt that sometimes she didn't understand my passion for following Jesus wholeheartedly. Now she knows and now she rejoices in the blessings of the Lord.
What kind of an eternal legacy will you leave?
