Haunting Question

Sitting here at work, brainstorming ideas on how my team can more intentionally measure the business impact of our training programs...and my head is suddenly invaded by a silent question with a discernible divine pulse:

What legacy are you creating?

I don't think we have any way of knowing. I can try all I like to create a legacy of faith, commitment, and compassion to pass on to my daughters, but they're just as likely to remember me as impatient, cranky, and distracted.

It's really no different in business or ministry or any other area of life. I can think of leaders in those fields who believe they're leaving a legacy of "excellence" or whatever, when what they may best be remembered for is being hyper-controlling and legalistic.

The best we can do is try to live an authentic life and become better people in the process. Our legacy will be different things to different people, and we have no way of predicting what that will be.
