“As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.”
The above scripture depicts how insignificant our life is in the big scheme of things. We are here for only a season, and all that will be left of us is the legacy that we leave behind. All our worldly and material possessions that we have accumulated will be gone, and all that will be left is the little things that our children and grandchildren will remember of us. Our future generations will only recognize our names and will have no further knowledge of our existence on this earth. Our place in this world could be compared to the analogy of placing our hand in a bucket of water and removing it; after the water stills and the ripples subside there is nothing left. Therefore we need to live our lives, not with the desire to accumulate great wealth as we cannot take this with us, but need to concentrate our lives to leave a legacy that will carry on after we are gone. Our efforts need to be to do what is right and good and to be remembered by our families, friends and everyone as being an example of someone who made a difference in the lives of others. This is the way that we need to be remembered and our legacy should be reflective of this. Even though my grandfather has been gone many years his legacy is still remembered by all who knew him and his future generations. This is the type of legacy I aspire to leave for my children, my grandchildren and my future generations and would be happy to be compared with my grandfather. Even before we were born God had a plan for our lives. The legacy we leave behind needs to be built on this plan of God which is to make Him first in all we do, and to obey and follow His commands. This takes careful study of the Bible and prayer as this is where we will learn the wisdom it has to offer. The Godly legacy we leave behind will also secure us the promise of an eternal home in Heaven, which will be our reward.
