The apostle Paul in the Bible gave some good advice to a young man named Timothy. He said “The things that you’ve seen and heard from me, teach those to faithful people who will teach others also.” This guy was in it for the long haul.
It’s great to have knowledge. Imparting that knowledge to someone else is even better. If the recipient considers the lessons worth passing along, the benefits multiply. And when the latest one in the chain does the same, things really get interesting.
Paul – a great grandfather, so to speak, of spiritual nuggets worth sharing, thanks to Timothy, faithful people, and others also. That’s the way to create a legacy.
How we live and what we say and do, moment to moment, tells our story. For me, the question becomes: Do I approach all my activities (working, playing, cooking, listening) with quality, as paths of service and growth? I fully believe the ripple effect of that mindset will be positive – as will the legacy that goes with it. Great post.
