Do you spend any time pondering your legacy? How will people remember you? What stories will be told about you? How will you be described when you leave your current church, or workplace or neighborhood or this life?
We all want to be remembered well. Unfortunately, in an effort to create a great legacy, we can get into trouble by trying to do everything, and end up burned out and overwhelmed or feel so hopeless that we do nothing!
Lord have mercy! How do you find balance and direction?
What does God require?
Medical professionals use the term “potentiate”. It means to augment or accelerate the efficacy of a drug. So, when two drugs are taken together, the secondary drug augments or accelerates the effectiveness of the first one.
God commands us to love him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength (Mark 12:30-31) and to love others as Jesus loves us (John 13:34).
Our legacy is built by loving God and loving His people using our gifts, talents and life experiences to demonstrate God’s love to others.
In other words, we are to potentiate God’s love to others.
What did God put in you to potentiate his love to the world?
