“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.” Kalu Kalu
The challenge is how to truly communicate this message in a way that makes a lasting change.
The world is self-centered and the majority of people are looking out for themselves. The demon of selfishness seems to affect everyone at some level.
Rare is the individual whose legacy is built upon doing things for others. The difference is remarkable.
Spiritual leaders should stand out for this quality. Here are a two reasons why.
It is the example set and taught by Christ. The final lesson before His death was one of being a servant. When we follow this example we testify to the world we are His disciples.
The apostles taught it to the early church. Each time we find self-centeredness there is always death, destruction and division. The unity and harmony of the church must be built on service.
When we do for others, we are leaving a legacy that leads to an eternal home with God and takes others along also.
