Have you ever thought about your legacy? When you die, how would you want people to remember you?
Several years ago, we lost several of our friends to cancer. They were in their early-mid forties, WAY too early to leave their young families, but it made everyone aware of how precious life is and that it can be taken from us at any minute. As we attended those funerals, my husband and I talked about living every day with purpose and about the legacy we will one day leave behind.
“Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face, who did all those miraculous signs and wonders the LORD sent him to do in Egypt–to Pharaoh and to all his officials and to his whole land. For no one has ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deeds that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.” ~Deut 34:10-12
Pretty impressive, isn’t it? Notice there’s no mention of the sins of his youth, only the obedience of his mature years. Moses learned from his mistakes, followed God and left a legacy of faithfulness.
