a legacy of life

What will we leave behind...we think
Of riches, homes and stuff...

Why wait until the end I think
for now is soon enough...

to leave behind the greatest thing
a man can ever give,

the legacy of life must start while
we do breathe and live.

To show His presence calls for acts
of kindness now and here,

To speak His words of new-found hope...
It's best when ears can hear.

Our children learn...then take their turn
We give them all we can,

Before they leave our homes, so that
Their own will know His plan.

It's not so much how ends our days
or how much we then own,

As how we turn the daily page
and point to Heaven's throne.

Mark 8:35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it. 36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
