Legacy Tip: Legacy Element of Forgiveness

To hear more about Forgiveness as a Legacy Element, listen to the Build Your Legacy Podcast (see link at bottom of post) Forgiveness is one of the life-changing elements that impact our legacy. If we do not build our legacy laced with quick and full forgiveness, we will end up "stuck." And if we are "stuck," we cannot build our legacy in that area of unforgiveness.

John 19:26-30 But I say to you that everyone who continues to be angry with his brother or harbors malice against him shall be guilty before the court, and whoever speaks [contemptuously and insultingly] to his brother, ‘Raca (You empty-headed idiot)!’ shall be guilty before the supreme court (Sanhedrin); and whoever says, ‘You…

Legacy Tip: Legacy Element of Passion

To hear more about Passion as a Legacy Element, click here to listen to the Build Your Legacy Podcast. Passion is one of the four elements of change in our life and legacy.

What I could change, but don’t!

I have heard, "just live with it" many times in life, and it upset me because they did not have to live with it, I did! And at times, friends and family added a caveat to try and make me feel better, like, "just live with it, for now."

And the unspoken caveat in me was, "because you know it will never change, even though it could." Ouch! Then through prayer and self-reflection, I realized there were things I found "the art of living with" in my life. Knowing I could change but didn't was heartbreaking until I grabbed onto the hope of God's Word and the grace…
