The legacy that we leave behind

Posted by appolus on September 1, 2018

I have watched the two funerals in America this week, one a music star, the other a sailor and a politician. I was filled with a great sadness. Not the sadness of mourning, although I did feel for the families. Having lost dear loved ones myself I know the pain of that loss. No, I felt a deep sadness at the worldliness of it all and how it had little or anything to do with the Lord.

The world certainly celebrates its own. I heard very moving words from a daughter about how her father had raised her, but I also heard bitterness and biting anger. When we look to legacy, we can often find it in our children. It is not important what material possessions we leave behind, nor is it important the titles we leave behind, what is truly important is what we leave behind in the hearts of our children and our childrens children.

We can do many things very well but if we leave behind a legacy of bitterness, if we leave behind the seeds of anger and revenge, we have left behind the seeds of destruction for those who carry it. There is a remedy for those who carry such a seed and if that remedy is realized, then when we come to pass ourselves you will hear them speak not so much of us at our funerals, but of the one who released us from our chains.

The mark of a life well lived is to hear the name of Jesus lifted up at our own funerals. What we leave behind is the world and all its ways. Oh how it loves its own. Yet what we journey on to is the Kingdom of God and eternity and all that matters in the end is just that Kingdom and how we served it here and now, now how we served a self serving world.
