Matthew 6:19 19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. (NIV)

Many work hard to build a legacy for the future.  The legacy they try to build is a big business or famous landmark.  They devote most of their time and energy to the building of this legacy.  As we age, some of realize how very short this life on earth is.  We see the old legacies torn down and others try to build new legacies.  We give so much energy to building up of material things  These things will not last.  There is a legacy that will last all eternity.  This is the legacy we build through worshiping serving and obeying Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  He has even provided us with an instruction book on how to build that legacy that will last all eternity.  Let us keep our energy and concentration in the right perspective.  Let us concentrate more on the legacy that will last eternally and less on the temporal legacy that time will destroy.
