Today’s society, world culture, us…can pass on our knowledge to the next generation with intent. The result, a substantial legacy to be carried on.
By practicing the habit of truly “Loving-oneself” by dying to “Your self”…It takes away the biggest hindrance
in our lives. Our ego, our self, our Id; without the self doubt and criticism, along with everything else that comes with it, we allow room for Love.
It naturally is a remedy to identity crisis, loss of purpose, loss of oneself, etc. Though this year my character and reputation has been betrayed and I found myself questioning my own self worth and sanity, did I love the wrong person, no. I equated the failure, to failing saving friends and the loss of the relationship to loss of my brothers.
Because My Identity is in something that Endures all things, Love. My purpose is an enduring purpose that is without end… “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13
Though I have failed and will continue to fail, I do know and can say with all confidence as the verse above states; it doesn’t matter if I sacrifice myself, my possessions, or my career. If I live a life where I do not Abide in Love, then it has all been for nothing. Because what happens when I die? Everything else fades away, riches, fame, beauty, etc. but Love, Love Endures Forever. It is the one thing I can give to everyone I meet, pass on to my children, and build an Enduring Legacy on.
What we choose to abide in, dictates every facet of our lives. There are those who know; and will attest our life can be snatched away so quickly, that your brain cannot even grasp the immediacy of death. Choose a Legacy. My legacy won’t be of a Victim, Broken, and Dysfunctional. “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his brother. John 15:13
