A precious friend almost lost her 45 year old husband to several heart attacks in one night last Sunday night. 5 children in toe. It was not his time to go. The legacy however is one that he can leave that says he would give the shirt off his back quite literally. One family whose sacrificial giving is just that – sacrificial. I’m blessed to have come across a number of people like this in my life. Quite a number at that. They love hard.
Coming from a background that had so much conflict to it, is precisely why it breaks my heart when brothers and sisters in Christ can’t or won’t or refuse to resolve. Thankfully, I haven’t seen much of that. I have attended funerals where there were hundreds, and I have attended a funeral where 3 including myself were present.
Be vulnerable. Love hard. Walk away if the situation is dangerous, but let Him lead. Forgive quickly. (That’s been a personal “toughy”, but He’s making my skin thicker in the sense to move on immediately!) There’s just so much to do and so little time to do it in.
Every thing, every situation, and everyone is not for us to be involved in or with in this life. The world is a pretty big place. I hope to know when to enter and when to exit. I just want to get the “legacy” right.
