This week I received a sad phone call. A lady that was a family friend had passed away. As this person related the information to me, they shared with me their memories and thoughts on this lady. They began, “She was a godly woman, kind and loving she was faithful.”
As I listened, I realized that they were describing the fruits of the Spirit. This woman had left a legacy and had lived her life, exhibiting the fruits of the Spirit.
My caller went on to describe that this lady had not had a perfect or easy life. She had suffered loss, dealt with health issues, buried a grandchild and like the rest of us struggled. However, she strived to stay upbeat and trusted the Lord to bring her through the trials. Her faith had seen her through some difficult periods in her life.
When our time is done here on earth, how will we be remembered? Will our life be recognized as one that exhibited the fruits of the Spirit?
What legacy will you leave?
