"No legacy is so rich as honesty." ~ William Shakespeare
Legacy. Inheritance. Something passed down from generation to generation. A legacy is created day by day--but how often do we think about our legacy as we grocery shop, do the laundry, work at our jobs,discipline our children?
An inheritance can be something concrete like your great-grandmother's china or your mother's pearl necklace or maybe a wedding gown that's been stored in a trunk for decades.
But what about the intangible legacy we are leaving behind? Faith. Honesty. Forgiveness. Love. Compassion. How often do we purposely weave a legacy of character?
In Your Words: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?
